Holy Crap! World Still Cares About Us

When foreigners are asked what they think about America, they often make a point to say they like Americans, they just don't like what the government does. I have heard many people make this distinction.

There's more evidence of this as the list of countries offering help is growing by the hour. NPR reports that Hugo Chavez, a week after Robertson's fatwa, has offered help (oil, I believe) but made a point to call Bush "President Vacation."

No comeback for that one, George!

And how about this: Greece has offered to send cruise ships to house the homeless. Think about that. That's a BIG deal. That's stepping up to the plate.
