This is a new site, full of hope and trepidation! What you can expect to see at this site are the issues and snafus that attend communication between people in the USA.
This blog is driven primarily by an interest in those peculiarities of the American scene which reflect nothing so much as a desire to be defiantly different, to blaze your own trail. Such as calling a game “football” when it is almost never played with the foot (and with utter disregard for the billions of people the world over who play their football with the foot); riding to the moon and beyond in spacecraft that still measure quantities in “bushels,” “inches,” and “pounds,” with implicit disdain for the rest of humanity who have coalesced completely around metric mensuration for generations now; such as the blustery assertion, “I don’t want no nothin’ from nobody.”
The American gusto for improvisation fosters innovation, yes; but also quite often it leaves you scratching your head. Please come in! You scratch my head and I will scratch yours, OK?
