Colbert on immigration

I know that the The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is over a year old now and you have all probably already seen this BUT I was just watching Junot Diaz's appearance on the Colbert Report and almost died laughing.

Here's my one bone to pick with you, OK, Colbert says. Sir, you were not BORN here, OK? You came here at age 6 and took away a Pulitzer from an American writer. Couldn't an American writer have written about being a Dominican nerd?! That's something an American would have wanted to do!

Absolutely brilliant commentary on immigration! I hope Lou Dobbs was watching.

  1. Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen that interview, either!

    I'm going to check out your house tonight. Fingers crossed!
