I recently spent two weeks in

I recently spent two weeks in Italy. I was hassled less by the Italan authorities coming and going than the US authorities. I was able to converse with the Italian people, almost all of which knew English, while what, maybe one in five hundred US citizen know Italian?

Their food and drink and music and culture and transportation systems were marvelous.

Of course, we have our benefits here too.

But, just because we live here doesn't make us exceptiional.
