Rick Steves

In the Lap of Luxury

We should all love living in a country where a man like Rick Steves, in all of this nasal-voiced glory, can talk through his nose, get haircuts at Greatclips and innocuous polo shirts at JCPenney, and still manage to build a thriving corporate empire simply by traveling to the most beautiful locales in the world and eating at the most fabulous restaurants on the planet.

It’s the America that every average Joe dreams of conquering. It’s an America where the Statue of Liberty might instead declare:

Only in America“Give me your Muppet-voiced, your ten-dollar haircuts,

Your huddled masses in your pleated tan pants yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse in your comfortable white tennies,

Send these, the lacking of any distinctive personality, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door and… who wants to be a MILLIONAIRE?

They guy gives hope to us all. He had the courage to name his company “Back Door Productions” with utter lack of irony. The guy even supports the decriminalization of marijuana. Plus, his travel books are generally spot on and his TV show is hypnotic.

Rick Steves, and other people who couldn’t give less of a shit what people think about them, are effing awesome.
