Now isn't this interesting?? I read the following snippet on AnnArbor.com:

WITH POLL: GOP-backed bill would discriminate against legal residents, Ann Arbor lawmaker says

State Rep. Jeff Irwin, D-Ann Arbor, says a piece of legislation headed his committee's way in the state House might be best dubbed the "Show Me Your Papers" bill. He says HB 4305 would unfairly discriminate against legal immigrants and other legal residents by requiring them to prove their immigration status upon request without justification. Weigh in with your thoughts.

Yes, that's right; if illegal immigrants have to carry their papers, then everyone else does, too. Nobody considered that before?

And just the other night I was talking with a friend who mentioned how much better it is here in China than it was fifteen years ago, when any policeman on the street could ask you for your identity card, and woe to you if you couldn't produce it . . .
