For whoever's lived on both sides of the pond

"I think the biggest difference between England and America is that England has history, and America has geography. In England, you can find whatever you need as long as you're willing to go back far enough, or go and find out when it happened. In America, you can find whatever you need just as long as you're prepared to drive far enough".

- Neil Gaiman (interview at the back of American Gods)

Who was it who said that in England you have Inquiry, whereas in the US you have Information. That is essentially the difference between the two democracies: in England, you have the right to ask, while in the US, you have the right to know.

Great quote.

You like Gaiman, I take it?

No idea, but that's a great one too.

We do like Gaiman. Especially American Gods.

oh I love these random Gaiman jewels. Never understood why he would choose to live in the US. Suppose traveling in the same time period is easier than through time.

thought Coraline was ok but not really Gaiman-ish
