    Yeah, finally that "America" place we were told about as kids - that melting pot with all those different people making a nation - finally it looks like that, doesn't it? Pretty damn cool :)

    Why should immigration stop with my grandparents? Migrant farmworker and his wife, then labor camp worker and cook, then shop owners and parents of nine, then parents of nine college graduates and grandparents of people called "doctor." My students are the nine - the first to go to college, many of whom will be called "doctor" in their time. Life goes on. Take good care of the country when we're gone. It's been good - make it better, "you people" :)

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.
