The Secretary General

It has just crossed my mind - what does it say about me culturally when I look at the list of Secretaries General of the United Nations, and the only name that I know how to pronounce is 'Kurt Waldheim'?

btw, this may be a rhetorical question :-)

Look, though:

Trygve Lie
Dag Hammarskjold
U Thant
Kurt Waldheim
Javier Perez de Cuellar
Boutros Boutros Ghali
Kofi Annan
Ban Ki-Moon

and there I was thinking I was really rather cosmopolitan ... *sigh*
