Years ago, when my wife and I lived in Belgium, we noted that the older Belgium's where very appreciative of Americans while the younger Belgium's were hostile in some cases ... Good will is easily lost ... Great photo blog.

The comment above nearly had me speachless... and sad.
Ah yes, I wanted to thank you for the link: fun read and so many theories! I must confess I had never heard of the term before.
