    As a Brit, let me give you an instant (if, possibly, unconsidered) answer.
    a) Whatever you Americans do, you tend to do it better (and that could be a
    back-handed compliment, if you think about it.)
    b) You know it.
    c) Maybe the rest of us are a bit jealous.
    Sorry - I'm a novelist, not a straight political analyst or sociological
    commentator, but perhaps my consequently warped view gives a new
    perspective. Certainly, viewing this mailing list has taught me as much
    about attitudes as it has about Iwar.
    Incidentally, I subscribe because the book I'm working on is about Iwar.
    One of my characters is the fictive son of a deceased 1970's terrorist -
    anyone know where I can find biographical details on Ulricke Meinhoff? She
    doesn't seem to have been as widely written about as you might imagine.
