Jingoism?

Jingoism is unattractive, or worse. But competitiveness is a good thing. We Americans have a lot on our economic platter as we strive to compete effectively in a wildly altered world. So I must admit that from afar (Copenhagen as I write) I chortle a little that the Americans are 5 for 5 in the Nobel winners announced to date. (My alma mater Stanford bagged 2 of them.)
