Dear Editor:
I do not believe Semakweli's letter to the Editor (01/23/08 ID) got the irony in my Lone Ranger joke (01/22/08 ID). Lighten up. Even the Supreme Court laughs once and a while. I did not criticize Honza Prchal's letter for his statement concerning the holding of dual citizenship, and am well aware of the laws and rational regarding same, both in America and in other countries around the world. My letter only drew light on the fact that he used his Canadian citizenship to gain a personal advantage through hiding the fact of his US citizenship. This is a luxury I do not share and it seems unfair that a naturalized citizen, has an advantage over me, a natural born citizen; but hey, nobody ever said life would be fair. I disagree with Semakweli's letter that "we live in a globalized world where narrow identification with one country is no longer consistent with reality," except to the extent that statement may apply to Muslim extremists, whose religious zealously outstrips nationalism and knows no borders. What a shame it is that we now seem to live in a world without borders, where extremist ideologies can wreak terror, death, oppression and violation of human rights, all in the name of belief in God.
