Mrs. Peel we're needed

On Proper Chocolate

I've never been one for hyper-enthusiastic flag waving, or for shouting "USA!USA!USA!" at inappropriate times - like when my government decides to deploy troops in response to something other than clear and present danger. I'm not exactly jingoistic, and frankly, you would not be entirely off-base to accuse me of being "just another east-coast liberal who wishes he were European." On the other hand, I also don't have any real disdain for the home country, and actually think there's a lot to recommend it. For argument's sake, let's just say I have a measured opinion. There's good and bad everywhere. Collapse )
