geert and i first talked about the hws workshop that winter, i don't recall the 
exact dates. i have no reason to dispute that the term deep europe came from you.

why? it is a very appropriate concept which we are very happy to use? i find it 
very odd that you would claim an exclusive right to sth that has been in 
discussion left, right and center for 4 years now ... you should look at this 
appropriation with pride, if you have to.
