Constructive criticism from Jay Rosen. I'm not sure if this notion that Americans are naturally more inclined to experimentation and operating without a plan isn't over-simplifying matters, or indulging in yet more mythologizing of the "American Way". Of course, every time I develop these suspicions, the Europeans manage to dispell them with something loud, stupid, and rigid. I expect some clowning from Chirac momentarily.
