Only in America 

We Americans pride ourselves on our ability to assimilate various cultures. We are not multi-cultural but we are multi-ethnic and each subset brings its own flavor to the table.

Tonight my husband and I had dinner in a local Mexican restaurant, nothing fancy, just a nice family place. What struck us was this: here we are enjoying Mexican food, listening to a Mexican trio play and sing not only Mexican ballads but also Italian love songs and best of all, "Roll Out the Barrel" polka plus a few others. Only, only in America!!
