OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!
-- Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936), The Ballad of East and West
Looks like East beats West -- and on the West's turf as well.
