Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The American people and government have supported one of my research programs under the auspices of a treaty signed by Mexico, Canada and the USA having to do with biodiversity conservation. That generous support of research activities in foreign countries is perhaps one of those "only in America" kind of things (well, I think the EU does it, too, but I have not been on receiving end of their largess...they just eat up all our fish!)

Cartoonish Anti-Yanqui though I am, I recognise that the USA polity, internal and external, is multifaceted in the extreme. The fact is, the US gummint gave me and some colleagues a significant amount of money, and they may do so again (sure hope so!). And I am very grateful for it.
