  1. After serving for over 12 years on Cruise Liners, I met a load of Americans. Some nice, some not. I did discover towards the end of my career that it was only the top 12% of Americans that had a Passport.

      I heard that also and it’s kind of sad when you think about it. Out in Arizona once I met up with some blokes one night over a few pints and their take on things was that there was no need to travel anywhere because America had everything anybody could ever want. The problem then of course is that they presumed we want exactly what they do. I’m a little uncomfortable with the idea that Western Democracy must be imposed on people with a different method of doing things. I have no doubt for example, that Saddam had an ugly side but he was damned good for Iraq and its people for many years.
