Amen.  There is nothing wrong with noting international vs. *local*, whether
local is US, Asia, Europe, Africa, or whatever. If Len were in Europe and
made the same comment, there probably would not have been any complaint.  In
the politically correct environment of today, it is becoming more common for
slights to be perceived through the prejudice of the hearer than through the
intent of the speaker.

There are enough real instances to address (recall the recent postings about
Sun's "bombshell" and other *real* discriminatory comments), there's no need
to pick on trivialities.
