I'm with Rushi, can we please move this discussion to some blog somewhere. It's not SAS related, it's crossed into ethnic stereotyping, and we all get enough email already.

Since I read SAS-L via my newsreader, I'm both happy and sad to say this is the first SAS-L thread I've ever added to my kill list.
