They're apparently just looking for more "native culture" to look down on, while telling the rest of us that "all cultures are equal" -- which is why they prefer Marin County to Des Moines, and Manhattan NY to Manhattan Kansas.
I appreciate all your posts, BTW. Much safer here in Arizona, despite any superficial resemblance in temperature.
God Bless, and Stay Safe!
I asked the Iraqis guys just for a lark. It gave everyone a good laugh and it'll generate some good-natured jokes and ribbing over the next couple of days.
So NPR just provided us some positive energy. ;-)
Well, that's a relief .. LOL.

Was hunting on the Aces of Spades blog .. found nothing, nor on NPR .. where did you hear/read this, grey?
OK, I'll try tracing it through.
Please fasten your seatbelts.

Thank you!!! He's actually saying that .. AND that the level of tension is so high (and so the goat story) that a grocer was shot because he arranged his vegetables in a suggestive manner ???? Dear Lord.
Allegra, maybe you'll listen to this and share with your Iraqi buddies, when possible and let us know your opinion .. unreal.
but about Allegra contacting her Iraqi friends, check earlier in this thread for her reply.
I saw that .. but I wondered what she thought AFTER listening to NPR's screwy report.
