"Does America have any culture?", Chuck asks

It's no secret that the wisdom of/pop cornucopia that is Chuck Klosterman intrigues me. Not in the shitty "Oooh, I want his opinions." kind of way - but rather because CK vehemently argues in support of something I often advocate: American Culture.

In his most recent column for the otherwise useless Esquire, CK poses the question directly: "Does America have any culture?". It's a tricky thing to argue in just a few hundred words. I've sometimes dreamt of a dissertation that stems from this initial question. Until such time as I craft the abstract for that piece of text, read CK's article here.
