    ... before they're gonna be different.

    "Rome" changed quite a lot from when it started to when it fell. Eventually the changes became so great, it could no longer be called by the same name.

    The imprint and echo of Rome is still very much with us though, otherwise we wouldn't have this diary.

    So, will "America" fall just as Rome did? We can count on America continuing to change as it always has. The point of academic interest, I suppose, is at what point will America be so different that the name no longer seems to fit.
