I'd be very interested, though, in learning what caused the American method. Is it only spite (doing it as different as possible from the way it's done in the homecountry) or is there a practical reason (having a hand free to grab the revolver lying in your lap)?
I'm sure Bill Bryson explained it in one of his books (Made In America, possibly), but I can't remember what it was...
