Those idiots stopping the buses must not be parents. We in Miami took in thousands of kids through Operation Pedro Pan. And many of them today are my fellow physicians at the hospital.

If there were no Pocahontas, Sacajawea or Squanto, there would have been no Washington, Jefferson, or Madison. There must be a better way. The answer is tolerance and love.
