No, really. I mean it. You want to be a jerk, I'll fight for your right to be a jerk. I remember the guy at JFK customs four years ago telling me I had "an attitude" when I said, "I'm a U.S. citizen, what do you think I'm doing here?" in answer to his question what I was doing in the USA "this time." To which I added, "And so what? Since when is it a crime to have an attitude?"
I have been living and posting cartoons from inside the holding pen at JFK ever since. But it was worth it. (Click on the cartoon if it's too small to read.)
