OK, so WTF is with the Starland Vocal Band? Have these people no sense of honor at all?

The same is true of the Hutterites. They speak German as their first language, after several generations in North America. However, the statistics are surprising to me...

Only thing I can think of is that they may be from the area. John Denver "discovered" them and gave them their big break [I have entirely too much trivia parked in my head].

edit: research suggest they are not from the area, more likely from the D.C. area. Mars?

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Right you are. They were from Mars.

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset hates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lighting, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful" - Seneca
