My sister (a retired school teacher) just took on a contract job as an 
interviewer for potential immigrants to Canada.  Her SO is a former 
Romainian, now Canadian high school math teacher.  He says she is going to 
be too soft and let all the eastern European crimminals into the country.
I just tell the "Sparrow" that we let him in.  He does get a little upset 
when I want to know why he needs the information from my experimental work 
at the nuclear laboratories and is he using the internet bridge games to 
communicate with his superiors back home.
