I didn't hear any fireworks... luckily!!
I like America a lot, though (and, quite often, Americans). I don't know about having "so little that's real". Blues, rock n' roll, jazz, punk, soul. Joseph Heller, Philip K Dick, Hunter S Thompson. Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino. Bill Hicks. Richard Pryor. Texas BBQ, steaks, rueben-on-rye, key lime pie... state fairs, craft beer. Stunning scenery from cowboy country to wine country... secluded islands and beaches, to epic mountains.
OK so the sports are terrible, and the cars aren't very good and going round corners. I still struggle a bit with country music. And they keep on electing morons. But you can't have everything.
