I think I could pass for a Canadian.  Other than the fact that I would mispronounce "about" and don't use "eh" in normal conversation.  I bet I look like the vast majority of Canadians.

And that's why this whole immigration legislation in Arizona is bonkers.  I understand that federal actions have left very few options for the citizens of that state.  And I can empathize with families that want to feel safe and secure in their homes.

Nonetheless, the last time we condoned a government asking for papers based on appearance, the world erupted in war.  I realize it might be easy to point to a Hispanic man and wonder if he's "legal."  But what about a blue-eyed blonde?  She could be a Canadian illegal immigrant.  (It's not a joke, it happens.)  Something needs to happen - some solutions need to be reached.

But Arizona, let me tell you: this is not it.
Also, I have nothing against Canadians.  Robin Sparkles, I love you.
