    Um, if their parents are trying to become citizens, then - hello? - they aren't here illegally.


    This is something that even Rufus and donnA and I can agree on.

    {well, donnA and I agree on Emmaus, but you know what I mean)

    I think that means, Illegal aliens are "from out of space" and citizens are "from in of space".

    I just saw that. We now understand the intellect of the persons bringing bills before the Florida Legislature.

    Makes me kind of glad to live in Alabama.

    Oh, wait...
