House-Passed Visa Waiver Discrimination is Trump Lite

Robert Naiman

From time to time, people ask me where I'm from. "I'm from Arkansas," I say brightly.

"You don't sound like you're from Arkansas," the people say suspiciously. (I think this roughly translates as: "You speak English like a Chicago Jew.")

"No, really," I say. "You can check my birth certificate. I was born in Fayetteville." (When I say "Fayetteville," I try to pronounce it in two syllables, like my friend from Little Rock says it: Fayt-ville.)

The people don't buy it. "How old were you when you left Arkansas?" they ask knowingly.

Naiman sez: "Even the Patriot Act, passed in the wake of the September 11 attacks, had a sunset."

And, like residents of Barrow in June, we're apparently going to have to wait a while to see it.
