    of my fellow Americans that have posted rude comments about this diary. The title of the Diary is a perfect summary of the content. Yet, some folks read it and then complained that it was all about Icelandic Exceptionalism. This is such a typical knee jerk reaction here in America. We can't accept that there could be a better way. If we hear about it, all we want to do is criticize.

    This diary is one of the best I have read this year. I am sorry you were given so much grief for your efforts. Most of us really appreciate your diaries!

      At the risk of being labeled an "elitist"by a lot of my dumb down fellow citizens here in the US, I have to say that a lot of that arrogance and ignorance would take a huge hit if these people traveled outside the country.

      As the saying goes, travel broadens one's perspective and brings about the awareness that where one lives isn't the center of the universe.
