What all this has to do with Harry Belafonte is beyond me, but as to Roger's point above. On the most basic level, I would define a "free country" as one that I can choose to remain in or leave without any intereference from anyone in authority.

Meanwhile, given the length of this thread, I guess I can only offer Harry a belated Happy Birthday. Hope he had a hell of a great party!
