"People elsewhere in the world think differently from us. I can sort of see 'us' Americans with their eyes. Not all that I see is attractive. I see an insular people who are insensitive to foreign sensibilities, who are lazy, obese, complacent, and increasingly perplexed as to why we are losing our place in the world, to people who are more dynamic than us and more disciplined." -- Edmund Morris, author of a series of books on President Teddy Roosevelt, speaking on "Face the Nation."
