  1. Immigration is the true story of America. I’ll never understand those who want to keep them out. Unless your name is Standing Bear or something, you’re an immigrant, and even he came across a few thousand years ago.


  2. Until today I had never heard the expression “fled, ass over teakettle.” Brilliant. Vivid. Surely there ought to be a chess strategy called “fleeing, ass over teakettle.” We’ll call my strategy that the next time I play my dad. He always kicks mine. No, not the teakettle. Thank you for sharing.
