    Being affiliated with the Dominicans is a very significant thing. To think that one would not be able to use a degree from a Dominican school for the things you mention is...odd.

    There may well be - but in that particular instance I was referring (in the literal sense - Latin re + ferre = "bringing it back") to a specific individual, a US citizen, I believe, who had slagged Europeans, not knowing, caring or realizing that his perceived target wrote under an Arabic name. Yes - Dumb-ass can be from anywhere and I. myself am not wholly exempt. Who is? Xenophobic - not my personal demographic. I think that's been proven.

    Context is everything, in some cases. I think I chose correctly in this one. Zinged one guy - adapting his own words - not zinging his entire nation. Don't make it what it isn't.

    Gotcha. I think the singular "American" would have been better to zing one specific guy, versus "Americans". YMV, my feels are intact, so all's well.

    Glad you're OK. I used the plural "Americans" ONLY because the guy had used the plural "Europeans." Just wanted to make sure I was parroting / parodying him accurately.

    Yep. Amazing too, how much good music comes from that fella's wife - Diana Krall. She's Canadian. Diana has told interviewers before that it's a very musical household - they're both likely as not to burst into song at any moment. They should leave a mike on. :)
