Let's stop it NOW! Civil discourse is the least we can do for this
wonderful (most of the time) group.

I was slightly mystified by the "green card" statement and didn't even make
a connection between that and your name because I was reading fast. Until
you mentioned it. If that was the intent of the person who said it, all I
can say is, a bigot is a bigot. Words typed cannot express the disdain I
have for people who take such positions and think it all right. Free speech
is easy to abuse. 

I was going to send this privately to Danny, but silence on the group
didn't seem right. That's all I'll say for now. Lets get back to Leica.
