An American question about the English

\”Oh man,\” says Guarisco. \”There are so many different levels of excitement.\” And then suddenly, a thought strikes him. In a rare moment of something approaching concern he asks: \”Do people dance where you\’re from?\”

Err, yes, but in a slightly whitebread drunken uncle at the wedding disco sort of way.

The native dance is the Morris which doesn\’t really lend itself to the complex cross rhythms of zydeco…..

* Yes, alright, it\’s a variation on the PJ O\’Rourke joke about the Polish. So sue me.
