    Music, the electric guitar was invented in America and we got Duane Allman.  Both Don Ellis (strawberry soup classic jazz regeneration through regression, order out of chaos tune) and Allen Vizutti (the best trumpet player I have ever heard) both came from the Midwest.  Space up until they decide to throw a war, Apollo cancelled to pay for Vietnam (if only there had been one little alien on the moon, sigh), the shuttle, cancelled to pay for Iraq and Afghanistan.  But we did get the rovers.
