For one, her sex tape was titled “1 night in Paris,” and, as someone who spends an inordinate amount of her time here at Hopkins studying poetry, I feel I am qualified to say that this is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read.
So what makes them so American? First of all they were created by an American man, an American doctor no less, named John Harvey Kellogg (Sound familiar?). His brother would later outstrip him in fame through the creation of the Kellogg company.
