28. I'll tell you how it went down...

At some time during the marathon preparations, rehersals, and chaos leading up to the ceremony, some director's assistant said to Mr Boyle, "Oh, I say DB old chap -- the Yanks may get offended by our NHS spot, as they have no health care of their own."
And DB replied: "Oh, really? Well, if they do it's their problem."

Sometimes I think the US is just a self-conscious teenager. I could only wish we were more self-aware.
