    Does not world history interest everyone to some extent?
    Hmmmmm....we didn't do American history at all. We did a lot on the English Revolution, but mostly either ancient history and Australian history.
    But yeah, I am a history buff from way back, and if I do know anything about American History it's because I have picked up books and read about it.
    But I have found world history interesting for my own enjoyment. Most people don't. If one asks me if I find American history in any way special or spectacular, I'd say no, even after visiting some of your battle parks.
    Pretty ordinary stuff in my opinion. But I'm Australian, and I think our history is more colourful, as you believe that yours is.

    Maybe now, you all can come back.

    Now why would the American Revolution interest anyone who isn't American ???
    At last you have said something funny!

    Now that you have admitted you are not familiar with it -how about shutting up about it?

    They say the most that know the least, ie Palin,Bachmann, Beck, et al.

    Isn't it wonderful to be a American and have foreigners tell you what our
    Politics are all about? Hey, they even know our History...they read a book
    somewhere.

    The Democrats from Wisconsin have left Chicago, though. They were here for almost a month.

    Cassiesmom - they were actually in Rockford...my hometown. I was there during the standoff and Rockford is very proud to have provided refuge. So proud they have made an advertisment out of it...

    I thought they were at the Chicago Hilton and Towers! I heard on talk radio that's where they were!

    Two of my favorite Rockford things -- the Anderson Japanese Gardens, www.andersongardens.org and Cheap Trick, www.cheaptrick.com. I'll probably never visit Japan, but the Anderson Gardens are so beautiful and peaceful. I've been there twice- the second time it was a cloudy, damp day, but the garden was still beautiful. And Cheap Trick- well, I was in 9th grade when their live album from Japan was released. they were all over the radio and I've liked them ever since.
