    I am placing this in Immigration section because I think it speaks to the American experience. I kept lots of links to interesting sites and when bored with reading the repeat threads that appear too often, scan my rainy day links. Thought this worth sharing.

    "Maybe all of conversation reflects either an ideological or a utopian cast of mind."

    "Then, perhaps in response to my good humored acceptance of his criticism of my city, he got into deeper issues. He said that a lot of the cab drivers here smelled bad, as did their cabs, especially those of drivers who wore schmatahs on their heads. So I figured him for a Jewish Armenian as he had figured me for a—what is it? Jewish American. So I had thought I just had fallen in with one of those prejudiced people, but the conversation continued."
