      Bill,
      This is both helpful and informative, though there's much I don't
      understand. Of course, some of the disgust one might feel for one's
      own country's or continent's politics can be issue of over-
      familiarity. The exotic as relief. And, believe me, you Yanks with
      your little flags ARE exotic.
      I'm wondering whether to watch the Athletics (BBC2), or go for a
      walk. The husband's in bed.
