Hi Evan,

That fully states my personal opinion, too.  We just have to put something in, even if its "we don't care" or "we are fine with the status quo".  Staff has nudged me and told me we have to put in SOMETHING.

So, unless anybody would like to issue some kind of a statement for the region, our reply will be along the lines of "we are fine wtih the status quo".

Don't think there's much for our three-country region to contribute.

The only issues even of marginal interest (about which I've seen no
discussion) are:
- Whether some parts of the Caribbean identify more with North America than
South America
- The status of protectorates that "belong" to one country but are located
in a different region
  (ie, do we 'trade' Guam for St. Pierre?)

In all, I may have some opinions, but nothing strong enough to constitute
the basic for a regional statement. This issue means a great deal more to
other regions.
