I think the American people are idealistic. America came twice to Europe to save the continent. We had no economic or any other interest in the first World War and not even the second. America went to war against Hitler because he was evil and that was a just war. The American people have shown their willingness to accept sacrifices.

I cannot understand why America, where we are egalitarian and respect workers and reject class and caste, has become the tipping capitol of the world. Foreigners find it awkward and bizarre, and surely many of us do, too. I would love simply to pay bills without wondering about how much to add--10% at breakfast? Many people, in other countries, find the idea of tips demeaning. Why don't we?
