We're probably related!

Actually, not. My great-grandmother was just obsessed with the Mayflower Society and signed us all up. I think it's just a vanity program. We're all German/Irish anyway, so I doubt it actually means anything to be a member of it.

Does being a member of the "sons of the revolution" count as a soft???

Tell that to the Wompanoag's and see what kind of sympathy you get.

Considering that fact got your people in for the first two hundred years, maybe you could give up your privilege with a little dignity?

LOL - yeah, getting good grades and test scores had nothing to do it.

"You're a WASP? You're in."
