You once asked me where I got the impression that Americans didn't 
understand other cultures. Well, I'm forwarding this message from a person 
on another mailing list. He sent me this when I told him not to refer to 
India as "third world".

The only consolation is that he's been unsubbed from that list.

(oh, you're *on* that list)

People like him are the proverbial rotten apple in the basket.
