Your poll may be skewed by the fact that the majority of us posters are American, but, hey, we welcome you.

I know that. That's why I posted here. I don't want some Brit or German telling me about the USA. I want to hear from Americans.

Our main contact with the USA is CNN. Every day we watch guys in white space suits and what appears to be Army guys and police running around everywhere. I know the cable news channels are addicted to FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Disaster) but my wife is starting to think the entire USA is going thru what we see on CNN. She also thinks Yucca Mountain ("temporary" USA nuclear waste garbage dump near Las Vegas) is a top terrorist target.

I'm fairly certain that life goes on as usual in the USA. People are going to work. Kids are going to school. Families go to church, have barbecues, and watch or play sports on the weekends.

The airfairs and vacation packages are cheap and getting more so every day. I just want to warm up my old lady's cold feet a bit <g>.
