What makes America 'exceptional'? [Letter]

Americans may fear for the demise of American "exceptionalism," but is that exceptionalism really American ("America the mediocre," Nov. 3)?

After all, aren't most exceptional Americans actually from somewhere else? Didn't virtually all Americans come from another country?

As long as exceptional people want to come to America we will continue to have more than our share of them — and remain an exceptional nation.
