Miss Manners at the INS
Dear Miss Manners:
I have no comment on the latest INS fuckup – after all, every government agency likes to make a big high-profile bust now and then, but when you’re dealing with the INS you can’t possibly expect a big bust that’s not also a big fuckup – but there’s a smaller fuckup with a heartwarming heroine that caught my eye. In short, they want to send a woman back to Afghanistan after giving political asylum to her eight siblings.
If I had my way, of course, being a woman in Afghanistan would earn you automagick political asylum. But that’ll never happen, so I have another question. Let’s say I’m a red-blooded American bachelor from Plano – would it be rude to ask this woman to marry me? She’d get a smoother path through immigration, I’d get lower insurance rates, we’d both be happy, right?
