bart_calendar again: Things the Entire World Understands—Except America

I'm not sure about "the entire world". "The First World", "The advanced world", "the civilized world" I'd go along with -- you know, the 11 to 15 countries that are ahead of the U.S. in most things that can be used to measure the Quality of Life. But I'm pretty sure that a fair number of the most backward countries (or, to be more precise, not many of the people in those countries) simply don't feel that they can aspire to at least several things on that list.
