I have a link to recommend: the English Aljazeera site, and, in particular, the editorial cartoons (the link is about 2/3 of the way down the front page). Some of these will make you laugh, some will make you very angry, some will leave you in utter confusion, some will break your heart...but they're all fascinating. I have always been interested in what people in other countries think of our country and what they think of the world at large. When I was in, I think, seventh grade, we had some French foreign exchange students visit our French class, and I asked them what people in France thought of Americans. I think they said something like we wear cowboy hats and eat a lot of hamburgers.
