I do apologise for the insensitive way in which I brought to the attention of European readers the existence of aerosol cheese.  While America has provided many great cultural benefits to the world (The Rockford Files, Walker, Texas Ranger), I fear that in emphasising the dark side of the American Dream, such as aerosol cheese, I have possibly helped to foment yet more anti-American prejudice in Europe (I saw on Fox News last night that, at  apress conference in Paris, the militant French group Action Fromage had announced an end to its three year cease-fire as a result of my post).  Once more, I do apologise.
