Main Entry: pa·tri·ot·ic
Pronunciation: "pA-trE-'ä-tik, chiefly British "pa-
Function: adjective
1 : inspired by patriotism
2 : befitting or characteristic of a patriot
- pa·tri·ot·i·cal·ly /-ti-k(&-)lE/ adverb


Let's try that again.

Main Entry: pa·tri·ot·ism
Pronunciation: 'pA-trE-&-"ti-z&m, chiefly British 'pa-
Function: noun
: love for or devotion to one's country

That's better.

Now, Associated Press, explain this editorial decision...
