Is Google un-American?

So most of the searching done on the Internet is not in North America, as pointed out in the previous post. More people in Asia and Europe are searching the Web than people here, and guess what their favorite tool is? Google.

But hey, don’t get any wild ideas, you UN-supporting, Rick Steves guidebook-toting left-coasters. Google’s main office is on American soil. And now they’ve taken to dressing up their logo with pictures of a Soviet satellite. Ungrateful commies!

Watch out, Sergey. Once they find out you were born in Moscow, they might just try to send you back.

UPDATE: Well, today the folks at Google have for replaced the “l” with a sketch of the late Luciano Pavarotti, who was born on this day in 1935. Wait, wasn’t he Italian?
