Re: the truth about America....

Vamsi, you make me laugh not angrily anymore but good-naturedly.  You
say
things so off the wall but with such simplicity and emotion that one
cannot
be upset with you anymore.   Do you honestly believe that all that you
and I
have achieved (not much for me, I am afraid) is solely because of our
abilities and social conditions, work cultures and the merit system in
the
United States are irrelevant to this growth?  And to acknowledge that
beneficial climate indicates lack of self-respect?  Your naivete is pure
as
a driven snow my dear friend.  How can I argue with you anymore ?
