Americans are lazy AND carry a sense of entitlement, which is an ugly combination. It starts at the top and works its way down. Therefore, it's easy to see why we are sliding behind other countries.

U.S. tennis falling behind rest of world

In response to this breach in the delicate balance of power in world tennis, President Bush charged the U.S. Congress today with developing a rapid and dynamic response force to reclaim the US position on the courts.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich immediately called for the impeachment of President Bush, then boarded his space ship for Planet Vega to join in an intergalactic touchie feelie think tank focusing on world tennis.
