I swear I don't know where people's manners are in the metroplex.
It's because things are coming to a head. No one minds the occasional transplant here and there. But when they came in waves, thousands upon thousands, a way of life is threatened, no matter what the newcomers may bring that's positive.

I know some people don't care about a particular way of life or a certain culture but others do and when that's threatened and/or made fun of or criticized, look out! It's fightin' time!

And, I don't know why you feel the need to comment so negatively on ANYTHING I have to say... but you did!

It's not like they're coming to a one-horse town without incredible doctors and teachers here already, among millions of other quite accomplished and notable people!

Maybe I was just letting them know that they would be among other great "special" company once they're here and would fit right in!?!
