This is a quote from an interview I read on the Independent newspaper's website yesterday. It's with the 84-year-old writer and activist Gore Vidal who is a tad angry over the state of the USA these days.
Is there any hope? "Every sign I see is doom. But then people say" – he adopts a whiny, nasal voice – "'Oh Mr Vidal, you're so negative, can't you say something nice about America? It's a wonderful country, everybody wants to live here.' Oh yes? When was the last time you saw a Norwegian with a green card who wanted to come here because of the health service? I'll pay you if you can find one."
You can read the rest of the article here if you're not too busy hunting for a Norwegian dying to get into America.
