Actually, I guess it kind of does. How peculiar. Although you have to admit, that a lot of america's citizens, did come from europe. Odd that a lot of the ditty's in my birth area sound like dirges, and there is the slight brogue to the speech. Not so odd when you consider that they are descended from scots who fled the U.K. though. Everything is part of a pattern if you look close enough.
