There are statistical differences; I know of a number, but I
doubtlessly know only a subset. One to ponder is the usage
of time: stand up a Mormon more than a few minutes, and you've
crossed over into behavior that requires an explanation. But
members of most Latin American cultures aren't so punctual.
Other Americans tend to fall in between.

I'm not going to attempt to follow your "logic" anymore, Harvey.
Sorry. And before you attack each sentence of the foregoing
paragraph in context or out, please insert the word "statistically"
where appropriate.
