Well, while you're at it, perhaps you could convince your
fellow Americans that "U" (as in "United States of America")
is the /21st/ letter of the alphabet, and not the first : it

alphabetically ordered) drop-down country list were "Afghanistan"
or similar rather than "United States of America" ...
