One thing I thought was interesting from my international communications class was an article about American television shows abroad. A lot of cultures didn't like the imported shows because it couldn't understand, or didn't appreciate, the whole idea of identifying with the criminal, with the criminals being the 'good guys' and the police and such being the 'bad guys'. That said, that's a great story.

Her family is from Oklahoma, which was Indian territory in those days. Of course, some of them moved to California, like in Grapes of Wrath, during the Depression.My dad's family is more boring. Just Appalachian Scots-Irish immigrant types. But at least on my mom's side I have the outlaws!ZAP
