John Gray BS: Are Americans 'insular'? (114* d) RE: BS: Are Americans 'insular'? 13 May 02

From several visits to the USA, first for 14 months in 65/66, I have gained the impression that , whilst most Australians know that the US is comprised of states and the leader is a president, the Americans don't know if we comprise counties, states, provinces or cantons or whether our leader is a president, a prime minister, a chief, a dictator, a king or a queen. A recent survey here determined that only about 5%(?) or so of us knew the name of our first prime minister ( circa 1901 ) so the gov't put an advertisement on the TV to remind ( educate ) us all. I thought it was a waste of public money. How could anyone forget .... whatshisname ?
