I know. Your comment isn't what sparked me and my response was not aimed at
your comment; sorry it came across that way. Probably I should have kept my
virtual mouth shut. Len covered the idea already anyway.
P.S. As a former English major, I agree that it was a linguistic inaccuracy.

I didn't perceive any slight at all. Just a linguistic inaccuracy. To
Len, I am a foreigner or a non-American (and proud of it). I am no more
"international" than he is.
