I'd be afraid to see his list of what he likes about the US. Hope it has more substance than this one.

I feel the same way regarding the red signal lights. During the day they're very hard to see.

What do you mean by "too many regular trees?"

Regular trees??? I don't get this one at all. (vs. irregular trees???)
Well OK I shouldn't complain about the mass transit.
Regular trees vs. Palm trees

Agree with Sprawl. But not enough preservation of historic buildings? Really? in the 60s and 70s, definently, nowadays? At least in the Northeast, i think they do a very good job.

No, I mean during the day when it's sunny. The red [brake] lights used as signal lights are difficult to notice. It's easier to see blinking at night.

And regarding "non palm trees", that's a bit over the top IMO.

the northeast definitely does a great job preserving historical sites but the rest of the country not so much. in particular the city i live in is lacking with historical sites. but the ones we do have are pretty cool.
