Annie and I heard an interesting interview on TV today with Harvey Goldsmith – the person who is responsible for booking all the Bands for the Live 8 concert next weekend.
Mr Goldsmith made an interesting comment as follows:
“The average American does not even know where Africa is”
I feel this is a generalisation from Mr Goldsmith that cannot possibly be true.
The wonderful links I have built up with my many new Blogging friends in America leads me to believe that many Americans are indeed very aware of current world issues.
According to Mr Goldsmith maybe I am mistaken.
I have often heard it said that Americans are rather insular and this comment from Mr Goldsmith seems to promote that view. I am not convinced!
I would be very interested in comments from my American friends about this.
