    Why are there no women from planets other than Earth in the "Miss Universe" pageant? At least, none that we know of...

    Dax, because as far as we know, there are no other women in the universe, and at any rate we haven't been able to contact them? [​IMG]
    Of course, that sums up how a lot of Americans feel about the rest of the world. [​IMG]

    While we on this topic, why are the Toronto Blue Jays playing in the American League? Last time I checked, people in Toronto (at least a vast majority of them) are NOT American! The National League isn't much better. They should just rename these leagues to something more global.

    Ken, whenever someone refers to an "American", they aren't referring to people in Canada, or Mexico, but people living in the United States of America. Despite the names of our continents, I still frown upon us Canadians being deemed Americans. It's just a common belief that "Americans" only come from USA, and it's a practice I can handle, but Canadians being "American"? It makes it seem like we have no identity of our own.

    I realize that citizens of the United States are normally called Americans. If you look in Websters, the second listed definition of "American" is "of or relating to the US". In the context of naming a baseball league, the first definition "of or relating to America (i.e. the continents of the western hemisphere)" seems more apt, and is entirely more appropriate than "National".
