Needless to say, this is an excercise in futility. There are just too many great Americans in too many different walks of life that to pick just one from this mellange is an impossible task. And exactly what does the term "greatest" mean in the first place? Most influential? Most responsible for the betterment of society? Most home runs? One could certainly argue names like Jefferson, Edison, Salk, MLK, FDR, JFK or even Bill Gates, but to pick just one? Why and with what end in mind? Just another meaningless contribution to society's fixation with how everyone and everything measures up.

What I can't handle is even considering people the likes of Oprah Winfrey. Puullleeeze. And, if the original list of nominees I saw is any indication of the brain power some people have brought to bear on thorny issue of greatness, then we're all in trouble. Ellen DeGeneres....Brett Farve? Say it ain't so, Joe.

Up over and out.
