Aloha...

...which is why south of our border we (U.S. citizens) are referred to
as "norte americanos".  (Not sure what that means for Canadians,
though!)I always thought it was brazen of us to usurp the term
"Americans" when the Americas stretch well beyond the U.S.A.  Perhaps it
is because U.S.A. ends in America, and other variations referring to
"people from the U.S.A." seem awkward.

The light is on,

Brad

By the way Mexicans as all other western hemisphere citizens are
Americans as well.
