"as an immigrant to the united states--albeit a british, white, male, middle-class, and legal one--you need to watch what you say about your host country. especially in print. but after living here for a year, i've reached the stage where i can't keep quiet any longer. so here goes:

i mean, you really, really, really freak me out."
