The rivalry between The Jets & The Sharks - West Side Story: America
The Library of Congress has purchased the only known copy of a rare World Map that sheds a teeny ray of light on the discovery and naming of America. The price tag was $10 million.

I wonder if the creator of that official website of america knows that "Born In The USA" is really about a veteran pissed off at being neglected and is not a happy song.
