re: BREAKING: 10 dead in Munich terror attack; Gunman committed suicide - Big Scrub TX
[quote] 2nd generation is the generation after the initial migrant (the parents). [/quote] For whatever reason, I've noticed that UKers tend to keep some accent in the following generation. I have not observed this to be true in Indians, Hispanics or Eastern Europeans....

[quote]Why would you ask such a retarded damn question?

It's a shameful stance on several levels ...

[quote]upward trend where most people live (large cities). [/quote] Even that is somewhat misleading. In the most populous city, e.g., (New York) murder is at levels so low as to be astonishing. I believe just 3 cities account for the majority of the "trend". You're right, we will see....

[quote]This is what Michelle Obama said: “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” See the difference?[/quote] Not really. She was castigated for having not been proud of her country. Giuliani is evidently not proud ...
