You know, some years ago my wife and I were discussing “American Culture” and she said, “What is it?” And, truth be told, I had no answer for her.

Sure we can point out Jazz and Rock ’n’ Roll, and the cowboy, and blue jeans; but really, what is “American Culture”?

I’d be very interested to hear what James’ concept of what “American culture” is, because I can provide James a guarantee that it’s not about hairstyles. Or assimilation.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
