Hans, we should not go in this trap and think that way. May be most
members of the Seu/Edu list are orginated from USA but I don't agree with
your statement.
I  feel sad when I think of the americans that I like and the
americans that I admire (possibly disjunct sets). But do not
forget that I, an assistant professor on a dutch university
will be forced to teach in english for a class of dutch students
and to discuss the affairs of my faculty in english in a meeting
of dutch staff members...
