London: Matt and Maria, a little before 1:30am at a bar in Shoreditch.

right when we started talking, Matt told me that he couldn't believe the result of our recent presidential elections. when I told him i lived in manhattan -- my attempt at exoneration -- he told me he had an ex-wife from new jersey, and that new york city was cool, but the rest of The States seemed pretty backwards from what he had experienced. then he hummed a few bars of the Deliverace theme to make his point.

That Matt is a very perceptive fellow and spot-on! Very nice set of photos too!

Personally, Matt (and anyone else) is entitled to their opinion, but I think you should feel the need to exonerate yourself to anyone as long as you participate in the democratic process.

Sorry...that should've read "shouldn't feel the need"

I'm English and have spent years living in canada and the US, mostly in new york, and took a few cross country trips. I wouldn't say the rest of the country is backwards, there's just such a big difference between places like NY and more rural areas. In fact there's really even a huge difference between cities.

I would say that 51% of the country are barking mad, but that's just a personal opinion.... :)

I just can't figure out what you were doing in a bar at 1:30 in the morning in London. What with the 11pm last call. And the tube not running. And all that.

After meeting them did you then proceed to pack them in a Fedex box and ship them off to Williamsburg?

Stick close to the coast. It's get's a little squirrely if you venture too far into the backwoods. How does that song from the movie "Deliverance" begin? I love the sound of dueling banjos on a nice nature walk.

As we lament the retirement of Tom Brokaw, we can look forward to the future of U.S. network news:

"No one understands this Nascar nation more than Brian [Williams]." —NBC President Jeff Zucker

"[America is a] red state world" — NBC Universal chairman Bob Wright

"The New York-Washington axis can be a journalist's worst enemy" — Brian Williams
