London isn’t Seattle or Toronto. If you wanted to make a comparison, it would be to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and this is different and inferior in numerous ways.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
