Reminds me of the movie "The body snatchers". Soon we won't exist.

And to think that all of these newcomers will settle for being crammed in hurricane alley. If you have millions in the path of a natural disaster, it will be a place with total anarchy afterwards.

The artice revealed what we already know. We live in an every changing area. For some, like us, it still works and we like living here. For others, it doesn't work, and they find leaving is their best solution.

The demographics have changed over the course of time not to mention the economics. For many this is a disturbing fact. My life started out equally as diverse as the area in which we live. Were I to move to a typical US town, if such as thing still exists, I would feel out of place and probably pretty uncomfortable. And I am a hazel eyed blonde. I am a minority and that's pretty okay by me. :-)

I love hazel eyed blondes. I don't like blue eyed blondes, except as friends. As a protected minority, is there a registry somewhere of hazel eyed blondes????

I'm envisioning a new website here . . .

It's interesting and ironic that the Sun-Sentinel would run this story. After years of being one of the nation's fastest-growing newspapers, it has suffered large circulation declines the past few years. More people are getting news off the Internet, of course, but one of the other major reasons for the decline is that the Sun-Sentinel's former core readership of New York/New Jersey transplants and retirees is being replaced by Hispanics and others who have little need for an English-language newspaper. The same thing happened to the Miami Herald in the '90s, and now history is repeating itself as the immigrant population moves north.

I blame the liberal media/newspapers for allot of our problems, yet they pretend they want what is best for us. No so!

The article fails to mention how someone from a foreign country (average person) can move here and afford to buy a house and maintain it (taxes and insurance). Along with finding a sponsor to give them a visa and eventually earn a green card which isn't a cheap or quick process.

Nor does it mention how young people, recent HS or College Graduates, no matter what ethnic group they are, can afford to live and work here and/or find a job.

Only so far you can go on a landscaper or service person salary here.
