You knew it was going to happen. We have had The Bachelor. We have had the Bachelorette. Now, according to Reuters, we have "Who want's to Marry a US Citizen?"

It trivializes marriage (I don't know if they will challenge civil unions.) It trivializes citizenship. I can remember that Green Card was playing around the time our oldest had a French jazz musician boy friend and that gave us pause. But, at least we knew that it was a fantasy rather than trying to pass itself off as a documentary.

The thought that passed through my mind just now came from an old Pete Seeger anti-war song.. "When will they ever learn." I guess, in this case, the answer is "never."
