OK, I’ve had enough.   Not even going to look it up.  If I’m wrong, I’m wrong, but if I’m wrong, then the books and rules are wrong.

I’m talking about the little people of Ecuador.  Yes, the ones who took part in a genetic study of Laron syndrome, and who have something to offer us. 

But I’m not really talking about them, per se.  I’m talking about what the press is calling them.

I’ve seen them called in print as “Ecuadorians” and Ecuadoreans.”  And heard the same thing on the radio and television.

For God’s sake, they are Ecuadorans!  We are not North Americaneans or North Americanians, are we? 

Give these little people, their fellow citizens, and my eyes and ears, a break!
