    “are YOU Korean?”

    If you were looking at my sis-in-law – half-Irish, half-Korean – you might think she looked _exotic_ but not especially _Korean_. Or you would think so if you've not traveled much.

    P'haps the lady simply has not traveled much.

    My Italian-Irish wife explains how she speaks passable Korean: her mother is Korean.

    Which is always good for significant looks of puzzlement. She never explains that technically the lady in question is her step-mother. I find this very amusing.

    A couple of Minnesota White Bread (in appearance, anyway) friends have adopted four children from Korea, the youngest of whom is about to go off to college. I think it took them some years to stop getting irritated with questions, when the kids were younger, like, "When she starts to speak, will it be English or Korean?"

    'Course, that might be because the kids did, well, start to speak.

    I think a lot of this is just ignorance and stupidity, not cupiditry and poltroonery.

    More of these stories, please, Ken. And, for the dozenth time at least, you need to write a book.

    I don't know if I could stay married to a woman who did NOT take me up on such a standing offer…

    Heck, that would be tame for an answer.

    I like my women with some SNARK, damnit…
