Oh there's so much I love about the US:
The Moon landing, the Curiosity Rover, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Feynman, Jared Diamond,David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Tony Morisson, Joyce Carol Oates, Russell Banks, REM, Bob Dylan, Halloween, Fall in New England, Lake Winnipesaukee, Soul Food, New England, Clam Chowder, Vermont Cheddar!

There's loads and loads more, but right now, I'm in a sugar coma so that's all I can think about :grin:
Phew... for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself.....

Yes there are lots to like about America and Americans but overshadowed by tarnished glory and an embarrassment in Senate and House and politics....

The good

NASA NOAA The Hubble and the entire collection of world class science facilities
The Smithsonian, it's national parks system - both the parks and the people that take care of them. The Rockefeller and Carnegie and Gates Foundations and many other hardworking NGOs
Friendliness on the street, the national highway system, Obama. - most of the above as well.....'cept Eric Anderson over Bob Dylan :)
