     Correction, Ulf:  it IS a joke!  :-)
     Personally, I'm waiting for the laws limiting the legal
importation of non-Europeans.  Actually, that's been done too.  What
a strange world we live in!   Seriously though, I wonder how we
expect to preserve European culture by sealing it up heremetically in
a box, or bashing American films and TV.  Certainly, Europe produces
commercial product every bit as trashy as America's.  Just watch any
soap opera; or come to Britain and turn on ITV for a free
demonstration.
