Peter:

I'll spare everyone a response to your last desparate post. However,
amid the obfuscation, you wrote:

"Most North Americans are just getting around to the terms that
represent the first settlers here instead of using the now derogatory
term Indian."

I have several American Indian friends and know many others. ALL of
them call themselves "Indians," by preference, and pretty much dislike
the term, "Native American." So, you might want to re-think this one,
too.
