Coming up on Matters of Facts – America Week

ImageI first conceived of this blog while traveling in the States this summer and I’d planned to start it off with a series of posts about the States. For various reasons that didn’t happen but its remained an appealing idea. So this week is America week which will hopefully include:

  • I’ve already done a couple of posts refuting the idea that America has no history
  • The problem with American food
  • Why the constitution is not all it’s cracked up to be
  • The unlikely Confederates
  • How cars and air conditioning changed America
  • Why Asian-Americans get ignored
  • The state that gives gun licences to blind people

Also look out for a post on why a quarter of a century after the fall of the Berlin Wall the city is still divided, more on the differences between UKIP and the Greens, and a review of Blackfish.
