An Even More United Citizen

On Sunday, I became a citizen of the United States. My understanding is that I remain a citizen of the United Kingdom, as do my American-born kids.

I’m putting this post in the Business category for two reasons. First, business and government are hard to separate, particularly here, so near to DC. Second, I believe that citizenship is a requirement (explicit or implicit) for a higher proportion of jobs here than in most other parts of the USA (certainly than in Boston, where I moved from).

Presidential Meme

I just tried the 2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz, despite being a victim of taxation without representation here in the USA. I didn’t know much about my match, so I Googled him, only to find that ABC has just cut Mike Gravel from a Dem debate because he doesn’t meet the station’s “quite inclusive” criteria. Kucinich was also cut. Sorry if I somehow jinxed you, guys.
