Just on this point?
I had to laugh. I'm sitting in class, and a girl just said "On this point, I disagree with the Europeans" (emphasis hers).

It was amusing because this is, I think, the first time all semester that she has endorsed an American perspective over the typically European view of the world.

UPDATE [4/14/2005 - 14:55]: Oops, I posted too soon. She just added "Sorry, I need to clarify—I don't support the way the Americans are going about it, just the guiding principles." Isn't it grand when Americans refer to their own people in the third person? "The Americans," like "that guy over there."
