**************************************
The term "ugly American" has been around for years. It didn't come out
if thin air, yet people get their undies in a bunch when they're
called on it.
**************************************

I think the term came from this book:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ugly_American

I actually read it. It was basically a plea from some foreign policy professionals for us to do things right in S. E. Asia. We all know how successful they were.
