We never knew what we didn’t have.
We enjoy America’s moniker of ‘melting pot’ as a feature that distinguishes us from other places. It seems a great American pastime to find this way or that way to distinguish ourselves, especially in areas of our obvious superiority, and one area of that superiority is in our lack of a defining culture. Oh, there are those who wax poetically about the multiculturalism of this great country and we all… Continue
