For all the importance it has in the story, Paulino could have been a Nicaraguan nun, a Coptic Christian from Egypt, or a Purple People-Eater from Mars.

The point is that the only person I've ever known who got shot, got shot by his own government. That's the whole point of the story.

And if you don't like Purple People-Eaters from Mars, more power to you. I told the story the way it was because that's the guy I met. And I suggest you get a little more fiber in your diet.

Thank you for the story. I enjoyed it. If I were in Paulino’s shoes, I might have done the same.

We need a much better, legal, front door for immigration. I do not want amnesty, but I understand the incentive to come to America.

We simply cannot absorb all of Central and South American that want to come here.

A good legal system would allow a lot of good people in and relieve a lot of pressure for illegal immigration.
