Via BoingBoing: US detains 9 y.o. Canadian



From the Globe and Mail


“We say that if adults are Canadian citizens, then they can somehow confer protection of their citizenship on their children. But [Canada] don't allow the reverse. Instead, what we do is render, in effect, the Canadian citizenship of the child null, because he can't exercise it [and sponsor his parents]. It's as if his Canadian citizenship doesn't exist or is worthless because his parents don't have it.”

Pentimenti
( from the Latin: to regret)

When that which has been covered over
rises to the surface,
obscuring what has come after.
Second thoughts,
the past muddling the present.

I called her by your name today.
