Over at the beautiful etherfarm Narayan Nayar wrote a weblog entry about returning from five weeks in Germany and nine days in Spain defending his fellow americans and saying that they're not all packing guns and playing cowboys and so on, yet when he returns to the states that's all he sees. Being cultureshocked returning “home.”

And now I'm really convinced that a depressingly large part of the US population are lard-assed, gun-toting “ersatz cowboys.”
