50 Reasons Why The UK Loves The USA

1. DINERS

The diner is one of the truly great American institutions. Cheeseburgers, bucket-sized glasses of coke, comfy booths. It all adds up to calorific perfection.

2. NEW YORK CITY When eight million people from every corner of the world end up chasing their d re ams i n one place, that place must be special. Probably the best city in the world.

3.THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS

The most famous speech in American history is composed of fewer than 300 words and took less than three minutes to deliver. With the nation in the midst of the civil war, President Abraham Lincoln dedicated a soldiers’ cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The speech concluded with a pledge that has echoed down the decades: ‘‘Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

4.THE FILMS OF MARTIN SCORSESE

Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas. Scorsese has produced some of the greatest movies in the history of cinema, almost all with a distinctly New York flavour.

5. ARETHA FRANKLIN

The first lady of soul, with hits including Respect, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and Chain Of Fools. The state of Michigan, where she grew up, has officially designated her voice as a natural wonder. Quite right too.

6.THE GREAT GATSBY

F Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, centred on one of the most arresting characters in modern literature, Jay Gatsby. The novel also said much about America itself – a land where people can, and often do, ‘‘spring from [their] own Platonic conception’’ of themselves. A great work of art and a cracking, page-turning read too.

7.THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER

Not, as is often thought, the longest river in the United States (that’s the Missouri), but the most mythologised and magical. Its source is a modestly-sized lake in northern Minnesota, near the border with Canada. From there it flows approximately 2,300 miles to its outlet, south of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico. See it, in all its majesty, at least once.

8.THE SOPRANOS

It sounds like an awful mish-mash of an idea: invent a harried mob boss based in New Jersey and create a TV series around him, his family, his ‘crew’ and his therapy sessions. But great scripts and great acting from James Gandolfini, Edie Falco and others make The Sopranos one of the outstanding TV dramas of recent years.

9. MADONNA

The biggest selling female artist in pop history. A provocative and bold performer. A breaker of taboos, and a dreadful movie star. But never mind, Like A Prayer still sounds great.

10. MARTIN LUTHER KING’S DREAM

On August 28,1963, the most famous civil rights leader of them all delivered the greatest piece of oratory of the 20th century. ‘‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character,’’ was only one memorable line from a speech of breathtaking power and moral force.

11. ERNEST HEMINGWAY

The man who changed literature. Hemingway pioneered a sparse, muscular style. No one has written so plainly yet so vividly, before or since. His Pulitzer Prizewinning (and heartbreaking) novella, The Old Man And The Sea, is a great place for the uninitiated to start.

12. BIG, BIG CARS

Yes, it’s easy to get worked up about the environment and global warming. But there’s still something perversely admirable about the defiance of anyone who owns a stretch Hummer.

13. BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

The closest America has to a national troubadour. His best moment in recent years came with the release of The Rising, an album written in part as a response to the September 11 attacks. Springsteen is also guaranteed artistic immortality for Thunder Road and Born To Run, either of which could serve as unofficial national anthems.

14.THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

‘‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Enough said.

15. BRITNEY SPEARS

Spears has a clutch of great pop songs to her name, from Baby One More Time to Toxic. But, more to the point, she has delivered exactly the kind of ‘life-as-soap-opera’ moments we expect from our pop stars time and time again. Special praise is due for her two-day-long Vegas marriage. Superb.

16. SEINFELD

The sitcom that was, famously, ‘‘about nothing’’ became one of the biggest TV successes ever. Seinfeld ran for nine seasons, the travails of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer amusing more people every time. The show ended in 1998, despite NBC reportedly offering Jerry Seinfeld $5mper episode for a new series.

17.THE CLINTON FAMILY

A husband who is the most charismatic and most libidinous figure in American politics. A wife who looks sure to run for the presidency in 2008, thus ensuring the mother of all election battles. And, lest we forget, a daughter who seems remarkably sane given the circumstances of her upbringing. In the eyes of many, America’s real first family.

18. STARBUCKS

We can all complain about corporate expansion, globalisation and all that other worthy but dull stuff. But, really, where can you get a better caramel frappuccino?

19. OPRAH WINFREY

Her chat show has thrust many previously marginalised subjects into the American mainstream. Her book club has encouraged millions of Americans to read more regularly. Oprah, a major philanthropist, is also believed to be the world’s only black billionaire.

20.YELLOWCABS

A New York phenomenon rather than a US-wide one, but still one of those symbols of America that never seems to age or tarnish.

21. ELLIS ISLAND AND THE STATUE OF LIBERTY

The door to the land of opportunity. Between 1892 and 1954, over 12 million immigrants entered the United States through Ellis Island. (The first was 15-year-old Annie Moore from Cork.) A plaque inside the Statue of Liberty’s base bears the famous lines ‘‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

22. HARRIET TUBMAN

Tubman, who herself escaped slavery in 1849, later made about 19 secret expeditions to guide other enslaved blacks to freedom along the ‘Underground Railroad’ – a network of safe houses provided by blacks and abolitionist whites. She later became the first woman in American history to plan and lead a military attack, freeing hundreds more slaves in a raid in South Carolina during the Civil War.

23.THE NEW YORKER MAGAZINE

A weekly slice of brilliance, the New Yorker blends superb reportage with fiction from literary giants.The mix is leavened with a healthy dollop of cartoons. The best magazine in the world.

24.THE BLUES

One of the many musical genres that are American – and, more specifically, African-American – inventions. Marrying old spirituals, so called ‘field hollers’ and west African influences, the blues laid the foundation for much of what was to follow, including rock ’n’ roll. Masters like Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, John Lee Hooker and Willie Dixon created music of elemental force.

25. SESAME STREET

The greatest children’s television programme ever, Sesame Street also created the ‘educational entertainment’ template that many others have since followed. There have been over 4,000 episodes and the show has been broadcast in at least 120 countries. With stars like Big Bird and Bert & Ernie, nowonder it worked.

26. MUHAMMAD ALI

From the night he first won the heavyweight crown by defeating Sonny Liston to his later epic battles with George Foreman and Joe Frazier, Ali was without peer as a boxer. But his influence outside the ring, in refusing to fight in Vietnam and in becoming an outspoken advocate for African-American rights, was even more significant. The greatest, indeed.

27. CNN

The channel that sparked the 24-hour ‘rolling news’ revolution has been out-paced in the competition for viewers by the conservative, Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News Channel. But CNN is still the place to turn for coverage of tumultuous developing events.

28. GREAT COP SHOWS

Law& Order and its spin-offs are the latest successes in a lineage that includes Kojak, Hill Street Blues, Cagney & Lacey and NYPD Blue.

29. CHRIS ROCK

The funniest man in America. It’s that simple.

30. ROAD TRIPS

. . .which can, of course, be taken anywhere, but which are, at root, an American tradition. The American highway has always been a place where liberation can be found, at least in the popular imagination, and speeding down one of the arteries that criss-cross this huge nation, it’s just possible to believe it.

31. JOHNNY CASH

A great American renegade. A voice like a lion’s and a face that looked like it belonged on Mount Rushmore. He rightfully enjoyed a career resurgence in the last years of his life. In the process, he made one of the most moving videos ever to accompany his version of a Nine Inch Nails song, Hurt.

32. AMERICAN FOOTBALL

Baseball maybe regarded as America’s national pastime, but football is where the real action is. The sport demands courage and athleticism in spades. Wide receivers, who have to catch a ball at full stretch knowing that a 220lb helmeted man is about to launch himself into their midriff, deserve every dollar they get paid.

33. DIVERSITY

People from92 nations died in the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center. There are over 100,000 foreign-born children in the public school system of New York City alone. The idea of America as the world’s great melting pot still holds true.

34. LOCAL RADIO

One of the great, odd pleasures of driving long distances in America is listening to different radio stations fade in and out as you progress from place to place. According to the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, in June 2004 there were almost 11,000 licensed commercial radio stations in the United States. Every one is a window into some city, state, or community.

35. PHILIP ROTH

The greatest living American novelist, Roth has been massively acclaimed for works including The Human Stain, American Pastoral and the much-earlier Portnoy’s Complaint. Sometimes said to be uneven – his most recent novel Everyman has received mixed reviews. Extraordinary.

36. CARTOONS

Unimportant? Maybe. Silly? Of course. But from Tom and Jerry to Shrek, America has been the home of the best in animation.

37. OPTIMISM

The great American national virtue. We Europeans may carp, but there is plenty to be admired in the Stateside belief that every ambition can be fulfilled in the end.

38. COLLEGE COMMENCEMENTS

In contrast to the typically dull Irish graduation, American graduations – or commencements, as they are usually called – are often addressed by a bona fide celebrity with something interesting to say. This year, both George W Bush and Hillary Clinton gave several addresses, while musicians Billy Joel and Melissa Etheridge and film director Spike Lee were among the speakers elsewhere.

39. ELVIS

Before the fried peanut butter sandwiches, the jump suits and Vegas he was a young, sleek rock’n’roll singer who sneered, thrust his hips and changed the world.

40. EMINEM

The Elvis of rap. Without the jumpsuits, obviously. His prodigious gifts helped a primarily black musical form finally and fully cross over into the white mainstream.

41.THE 12-STEP PROGRAMME

Americans’ near-fetish for self-improvement can be easily mocked, but in its most famous and valuable manifestation it has led to millions of addicts breaking their habit. The 12-step programme came into being in Akron, Ohio in 1935,when Bill Wilson and Dr Bob Smith founded Alcoholics Anonymous.

42.THE WEST WING

As the Bush presidency took America’s global standing to new lows, Democrats and foreigners alike took refuge in the NBC presidential drama starring Martin Sheen as President Josiah ‘Jed’ Bartlet.

43.THANKSGIVING

In a nation where religion can play such an overt role in day-to-day life, it’s somehow reassuring that the biggest holiday of all is essentially religion free. Thanksgiving is like Christmas without the Jesus part. Fun, in other words.

44. MERYL STREEP

From Manhattan to Angels In America, no other actress of the past 30 years has been so good so often.

45. CONVENIENCE

The author Bill Bryson has pointed out that almost everything that makes modern life easier was either invented, or first popularised, in the US. From lifts to blenders to cup holders.

46. SEX AND THE CITY

A group of single women talk love, sex and shoes. Millions of women viewers get addicted. The adventures of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte ran on HBO for six years from 1998. Few other series have ever tapped into a zeitgeist so well.

47. MCDONALD’S

Because we’ve all been grateful for its existence, one time or another.

48.THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN

Living proof that good comic timing, excessively short trousers and an odd, gap-toothed smile can go a long way.

49.THE BUSH TWINS

Dubya’s daughters, Jenna and Barbara, prove that at least some members of the family can add to the gaiety of the nation. Jenna, in particular, exhibits amusing tendencies to drink too much in nightclubs and ‘give the finger’ to press photographers. Tremendous.

50.THE FOURTH OF JULY

Summertime, fireworks and a celebration of freedom from the British. What more could anyone want?

AND FIVE THINGS TO HATE. . .

LOUDNESS

A cliche but, like most cliches, also true.Why are conversations conducted between Americans at roughly twice the volume of those between people of other nationalities? No one seems to know. What is certain is that many Americans remain apparently unaware that everyone in the restaurant, bar or street doesn’t really want to hear what they have to say.

RUDY GIULIANI

The then-New York mayor’s actions on and just after September 11 rehabilitated the reputation of a man who had increasingly come to be seen as a divisive, failed figure. Giuliani is now contemplating a presidential run in 2008, but every TV appearance seems to underline his slimy and conceited character. The problem with Giuliani is not his politics. It’s that he comes across as a deeply unpleasant human being.

SUPERMARKET TABLOIDS

Bringing trashy journalism to new depths, the supermarket tabloids report with great certainty, but usually no evidence, on the latest developments in the lives of celebrities, criminals and assorted nutters across the nation. Dreadful stuff.

ENDLESS REALITY TV

A good idea, once. Now, a dead horse being desperately flogged.

PARIS HILTON Rich heiress who has become famous for being, er, a rich heiress. The leading personification of the phenomenon through which massive celebrity is bestowed upon people of no discernible talent. Wemight forgive her if she came across as a decent person. She doesn’t.

Texas Chili Cook-off

If you can read this whole story without laughing, then there’s no hope for you. I was crying by the end. This is an actual account as relayed to paramedics at a chili cook-off in Texas.

Note: Please take time to read this slowly… For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the San Antonio City Park.

Judge #3 was an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting from Northbrook, IL .

Frank: ‘Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge’s table, asking for directions to the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other 2 judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn’t be all that spicy; and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted and became Judge 3.

Here are the scorecard notes from the event:

CHILI # 1 – MIKE’S MANIAC MONSTER CHILI
Judge # 1 — A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.
Judge # 2 — Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
Judge # 3 (Frank) — Oh crap, what the heck is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that’s the worst one. These Texans are crazy.

CHILI # 2 – AUSTIN ‘S AFTERBURNER CHILI
Judge # 1 — Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.
Judge # 2 — Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
Judge # 3 — Keep this out of the reach of children. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face..

CHILI # 3 – FRED’S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI
Judge # 1 — Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick.
Judge # 2 — A bit salty, good use of peppers.
Judge # 3 — Call the EPA. I’ve located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I’m getting sh*t-faced from all of the beer.

CHILI # 4 – BUBBA’S BLACK MAGIC
Judge # 1 — Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
Judge # 2 — Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
Judge # 3 — I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the beer maid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. This 300 lb. woman is starting to look HOT .. just like this nuclear waste I’m eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?

CHILI # 5 – LISA’S LEGAL LIP REMOVER
Judge # 1 — Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
Judge # 2 — Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
Judge # 3 — My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted, and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I’m burning my lips off. It really ticks me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw them…

CHILI # 6 – VERA’S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY
Judge # 1 — Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers.
Judge # 2 — The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, garlic. Superb.
Judge # 3 — My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I crapped on myself when I farted, and I’m worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that Sally. Can’t feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my butt with a snow cone.

CHILI # 7 – SUSAN’S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI
Judge # 1 — A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers…
Judge # 2 — Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried about judge number 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.
Judge # 3 — You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn’t feel a thing. I’ve lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth.. My pants are full of lava to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they’ll know what killed me. I’ve decided to stop
breathing. It’s too painful. Screw it; I’m not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I’ll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

CHILI # 8 – BIG TOM’S TOENAIL CURLING CHILI
Judge #1 — The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
Judge # 2 — This final entry is a good, balanced chili.. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge #3 farted, passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself.. Not sure if he’s going to make it. Poor feller, wonder how he’d have reacted to really hot chili?
Judge # 3 – No Report
