Who was being critical? I was joshing him! (Didn't you see the

Hey, as a person who has a bunch of relatives in Kentucky, I resent that
remark about KFC... ;-)

Just kidding, just kidding!

Sure, we American's have LOTS of culture....our own unique one, blended
with all the OTHER cultures all the immigrants from around the globe have
brought with them and added to our great "melting pot".

Within a mile of my home we have culture from Italy, Mexico, Bosnia,
Ireland, Egypt, China, England, and on and on and on. I'm sure I'm
missing some. And those are just the restaurants and pubs (except for
Egypt; that's a place that sells Egyptian artwork).
