I just wanted to throw my thoughts in here. It's been a busy weekend and I haven't had much 'puter time.
I'll agree with the others. Your daughter/son (I can't remember which) needs to get to know these people better. When the guy down the road started hiring Mexicans all I heard was about the same thing you did. "we're going to have to lock everything up now"..."they all smoke pot"..."lazy S.O.B.'s"

Now I'm ashamed to say that I thought the same way....
Untill I worked alongside them! Other than the language barrier, I'd rather work alongside them then most of the Americans. They will outwork almost anyone, and do it without complaining. Not to mention, as you noticed, very gratefull. I had one guy try to give me $20 for opening his car after he locked his keys in it.
Are they all that nice? No.
Are all whites good people? No.
Sterotyping IS a bad thing...

Chad, way up here in Wisconsin
