Another good quote I happened across today. British SF and fantasy writer Michael Moorcock on living among Americans from an interview by 3AM:
At present the people are so badly served by their media that I can't claim they have the government they deserve. . . . I like living amongst Americans. Yesterday, I went to a barbecue in a neighborhood fairly festooned with flags and 'United We Stand' stickers -- mostly firemen, cops, paramedics -- and found the company tolerant, curious and concerned -- but not belligerently aggressive, as the bellowing Bushites make the country appear.
Moorcock lives in Bastrop, Texas.
