I love Britain, but...

Really I think the UK is tops (I even lived year for a year!) The books, great! The beer, great! The use of mass transit, great! The people, great!

The only thing I dislike is the idea, which really comes from the US, that the British are somehow more highminded than Americans. That they have their eye on the important things (page three girls apparently.) I have always suspected that they were just as celebrity addled as we are, and the Guardian UK gives a bit of evidence today.

What is the most viewed world news story by Guardian readers today? Why it is news of People magazine publishing photos of kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard.

I was expecting something other than Wikipedia when I clicked your Page 3 link. I should move to Britain, I guess.
