Yes; what HE said.

Reading Tom's comment again, in full context, I agree that Tom was referring
to our "cheesy pop culture" -- hardly anything to be arrogant about!

In truth, one of the things I like so much about my friend, Wiggins, is that
he actually has a greater knowledge and appreciation for other cultures than
do most Americans.

Now, TIME FOR A LAUGH! Listen to a few Boondocker clips at:
Start with "Can't Get [my car] Started" (that's Ringwald on piano), and
"Shake That Thing" with Art Terry's funny intro. Then, be sure to hear
Bill Gunter in "Pepe Plays the Violin."
Giggling is good for you!

Love and hugs,

Note:   WOODEN NICKEL  fans will be interested in hearing that
OTIS MOURNING is playing clarinet on the Boondocker CD. :)
