Only in America

I've criticized America a lot lately. But we are a unique country in a lot of positive and amusing ways. For instance, I was at a Dave Alvin concert on Saturday and when he introduced the band he discussed all the people his drummer had played for, including David Allen Coe (don't know if it was on any of his country porn albums). Then he ended it by saying that the drummer (from Springfield, MO) had once played on a gospel album by John Ashcroft!!! He must be the only person to even know both of those guys. What other country could this happen in? This is also the same country where Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggert could be cousins.

Even if you hate US politics, it sure as hell is an interesting place.
