LOCK THE DOOR BEHIND YOU?
I was watching the 11/15 episode of the Daily Show, and Jon Stewart talks with his guest about how the great American Experiment has improved through the refreshing and diversifying of our population, and not devolved, as the blowhards on Fox News seem to think it is doing now. He reminds us that most of the ethnic and religious groups now accepted as mainstream and establishment were once outsiders, a point my wife makes when defending her positions on immigration and diversity to our mixed bag of hyphenated American friends. We all know about the Catholics being outsiders politically until JFK, but there are many other examples. He points out how odd it is that a Mormon supported this position, given their history of persecution.
