    It's like getting an x-ray before bothering with an MRI. An x-ray is $10 and can at least eliminate some possible causes of a medical issue that would otherwise be very costly, or intrusive /...

    Am I wrong in my impression that "the whole world" at the turn of the century was Europe, Asia, and the "new world"? And at this point in history, Asians weren't migrating anywhere outside of Asia....
