What happened to my country Charles Schleininger corsair Went to our local butcher shop today. It use to owned by a Chinese family. they worked hard & sent their children to the best colleges. The sons & daughters have come back but as doctors, teachers, stock broker. Last year they sold the business to a family from the Middle East. All the kids work there. The plan is to put each one through college. They cater to a large Mexican population. So they have taken the time to learn Spanish. Today there were Anglos of various backgrounds), Afro-Americans, Asians, & Latinos shopping. Kind of reminds me of some of the old N.Y. neighborhoods. So why do some generations improve while others become 4th. generation welfare recipients? I guess if we knew that we could eliminate welfare!
