    It's funny. I just got back from half a Month on the South Coast and more than once I found myself listening to conversations between expatriated Americans wherein they vied to out-clever one another with their business connections, underpayment of Dominican employees, mark-up practices and of course the old "who's dating higher up the food chain?" BS. I flashed back to 25 years ago in Cuernavaca, Mex. where my Dad had retired and his ex-Pat buddies were having the exact same conversations at their favorite El Centro terrace coffee shop on a daily basis as they awaited the mail delivery to their respective boxes.

    A generation away, all the names and faces changed but the conversation remains just as tired and self promoting as guppies and minnows who find themselves in a very small fish tank try to convince one another that they're Sharks and Whales. The fact that these Countries still allow Gringos to emmigrate there is a testament to their social superiority.
