Hi Robert, you are absolutely correct about our hodge podge culture. What
about then a liberation from the "cultural" aspect altogether? IMHO, perhaps
drawing inspiration directly from Nature herself can be a good start. As far
as (pardon my cliché)" thinking out of the box", I think American are pretty
good at that :-)
