LAST DIM SUM IN SINGAPOREAmerica's most unwanted landscape.Singapore is one of the smallest countries in the world, yet it ranks fourth in GDP per capita. Most Americans do not know where it is, probably because it lies exactly halfway around the world, as far away from the United States as possible. Singapore is a nation where young girls and old ladies can walk in the streets at night, where the young are not preyed upon by drug peddlers, where the sidewalks are clean of gum, spit, and litter, and where slums and poverty do not exist.
