The Americans came with several copies of the Common Lisp the Language specification put into the format designed for the X3J13 draft standard. Each was about five inches thick. They also had a black notebook containing "strategy". On the second day, Dick Gabriel and Patrick Dussud sported "Lisp: Born in the USA" T-shirts. This created a search for counter-slogans (chiefly among the French delegation), of which "FORTRAN: Born in the USA" was probably the best.
