I\'ve enjoyed reading Kunda Dixit\'s Under My Hat column for the past eight months in Nepal and appreciate the sophisticated humour. He writes better and funnier in a second language than most Americans do in their own. But I wanted to correct one thing he said in \'Gross Domestic Happiness\' (#251). America has been making other countries \'miserable\' for at least 100 years, not 50. Who should know than an older American!

. It would be more appropriate if Kunda Dixit\'s column is renamed Behind My Mask instead of Under My Hat. By the way, is that a gas mask he\'s wearing in the last edition? Has the atmosphere for the press really turned that bad?
