  • Interesting that there still are interesting people doing INS now that they're part of DHS.

    Many years ago, Dad was a part-time INS Border crossing-guard. Back before INS folks were issued firearms, teachers needed summer & weekend supplemental work. He was on such a small bridge (from Canada, other coast) that the one Customs guy and the one Immigration guy each did the other's basic screening questions on alternate lanes. So it was once fairly normal to find a History Major / English Lit instructor / Guidance Counselor doing INS part-time. But now that they've professionalized it, I didn't expect it.

    As a kid, I enjoyed dress-up in Dad's uniform hat. But Dad's blue denim Immigration/B.P. uniform shirts lasted decades; I wore one every weekend for years. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
