One Way or Another

They're going to count you. I was a good citizen and filled out and mailed our census form yesterday. People get so crazy about it. Either they don't want to fill it out at all or they want to be able to put their entire family tree on the form. I didn't look that closely at the form. I just marked us both as honky and myself as hispanic--mexican. I find it a little funny that people seem so offended by the fact that they have to check the honky box. I'm sorry--Iranian (the latest one I heard) is not a race. When I was little my dad told me that people are either white, black, yellow, aboriginal, or a mix. Those are the races. I've never really understood ethnicities. Most of them are actually nationalities or religions. Well, it doesn't matter. I counted myself so they don't have to send someone to count me.

Ah! You beat me to it! I was going to write a blog about filling out my Census and the selection of race. I was even going to say something about nationality versus race!

I know that you and Nicole are different people, only because of her attitudes about meat

I ended up posting my blog about the census even though it's just like this post. What can I say, great minds think alike!
