The Heritage Foundation's 2010 index of leading economic indicators shows that the land of the free is only mostly free, falling to eighth in the world from sixth last year, now sandwiched between Canada and Denmark.
Land of the "mostly free"? Not exactly seeing the same thing at twilight's last gleaming as we did at the dawn's early light, are we?
