Send Me Your Tired, Your Hungry, Your Poor... and the Other Ones Too

Not every denizen of Hollywood is threatening to leave the country (even if the threats are generally as vacuous as their thoughts):

Actress Jane Seymour waived a small US flag and cheered after she and about 9,000 other immigrants became US citizens during a naturalisation ceremony in Los Angeles today.

The British-born actress who once lived in a mansion near Bath and is best known for her TV series Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman, said she has been in the United States since 1976.

“I’ve realised that I’ve been living here longer than in my home country. America has given me unbelievable opportunities,” she said. “I realised that with the US elections I wanted to vote and I couldn’t. I felt the time had come to participate more fully.”

I'm happy to have Ms. Seymour here. Welcome Jane.

"America has given me unbelievable opportunities"
Gratitude. It is such a healthy and mature attitude to have... in many things.

Welcome, Jane.

Me? I'd be happy to have Jane Seymour anywhere, any time.
