Sorry!

Could we stop this talk about USA vs. Europe.
I have a German and U.S. citizenship and I'm sad how the relationship is
developing right now.
Pointing out the weaknesses and advantages of these "cultures" won't
improve it.

Hey!  Let's not get all morally superior here least someone bring up the
location of the two largest wars in the last century.

And let's not forget that there are a few natives of the United States
patching the Linux kernel, working on the various BSDs, hanging around
on these lists, etc.

"Modest and humble" indeed...  ;-)
