I'm back baby...

Well, I am back from my 1 week in the States at Scott AFB, right outside of St. Louis and I gotta tell you - while I still think the US is the best country in the world, I am not missing living in the US at all. It's kind of ironic that just about the time that Michelle Obama is finally proud of her country, I am starting lose my pride in it.

Rude, overweight, ignorant, self-important people seem to be the norm now. It saddens me. What happened to the country I grew up in?

Have I just been in Europe too long?

It's more or less the same it's always been, although obsession with celebrity has certainly increased.
I found it strange when I returned, as well.

Phew, thank God, for a second there I thought I was turning into Eurotrash...thanks Gino!

But this is how you start to feel after spending an 11 hour flight next to an obese woman with a bag of candy invading your personal space because she doesn't fit into her own. I spent the whole plane ride leaning to my left...

It's been overrun with Obama's worshipers. Too bad you didn't land in a Sarah Palin rally. You'd feel the love there.

I gotta tell ya, Rik, I didn't like what you wrote about my beloved America. That cuts deep.
