        I am not here to defend the United States, but application fees
are required for most applications--universities, etc.  Isn't it true of
other countries too?
        The American Pavilion does not even want people for *a job,* it
is a non-paid internship.  So, if you want it is even more ironic.  But,
as I said, the application fee covers administrative costs.  I believe it
is a wondeful opportunity for students and I want to thank the person who
responded to my request for info. so promptly.  Maybe Venice and--yes,
Berlin! should learn and make such opportunities available.
