Be nice to the Yanks
Europeans’ detestation of George Bush is leading many of them to forget their manners. Visiting Americans report increasing (and IMHO unforgiveable) hostility directed at them personally — as if somehow they were individually responsible for the excesses of the Bush-Cheney regime. For any Briton disposed to take such a view I suggest the following thought-experiment. Just imagine how you’d have felt if you had been held personally responsible for Margaret Thatcher during her interminable and repressive reign.
