What's with this Aussie love-fest thing?
Q: Why are Americans so in love with Australia and Australians?
A: Well, Bill, I am actually a New Zealander by birth, so I don't know that I am eligible to answer your question. I think we are all a little romanced by their basic honesty and lack of pretention (the Outback Aussies, that is). Sorry I can't be more enlightening about this proclivity.
