4. I think you went to school in Boston for a bit? And you mentioned having always wanted to move to the U.S. and appreciating it's movies & music, etc. Has current events changed your mind about that?
.
I'm in the US every 8 weeks or so now - but mostly SF and NY. I love the country, but the more I travel, the more I appreciate living in Ireland. I love aspects of America, but find so much of it difficult to accept also (guns/racism/lack of safety net for people etc.)

I felt like this before the current regime came along - so my feelings are independent of the current president. However, he has made me even less fond of US in recent times - I try to ignore it and say to myself 'he's just an opportunistic lunatic and doesn't reflect truly how Americans are feeling', but I sometimes worry he actually is reflecting what large swathes of the country feel - and that is not a comforting thought for me.

Are you guys bleeping Donald's surname?

Reminds me of a Bob Dylan site I used to post to, where they bleeped out Phil Collins if you ever typed it. His name was treated like a curse word (rightly).

duckie, you are a true gentleman. I'm super sick right now, but wanted to thank you for such a thoughtful response. our days & nights here are marginally less depressing when it's an evil basket of kittens wreaking havoc on the world, instead of that other thing. Thank dustin for that one.

also thank you again. :praise:

Phil Collins is a national treasure! What are you talking about?
