When the concerned parents came to the PTO meeting to complain about the new "illegal alien" child who'd invaded the 3rd grade- they found that "Eliot" didn't exactly look as they had imagined he would. Some were pleasantly surprised to find that Eliot spoke excellent English. Better, even, than most of the parents- with just a little bit of an "off-planet" twang. But most felt justified in their original sense of outrage! The "drool" thing was still an issue. They lodged an official complaint and left feeling satisfied that they'd done their civic duty. God Bless America. These colors don't run. Amen.
