For John, BLUF: Multi-culturalism is sometimes awkward. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From MSN we have an Associated Press article from Reporter Michael R Sisak, about another member of the Tsarnaev family. This time it is sister Ailiana Tsarnaeva. Ms Tsarnaeva is living in Bergen, NJ, with her sister Bella Tsarnaeva. There appears to have been a love triangle with someone from Manhattan involved with Ms Tsarnaeva's boyfriend. Per the article:
Several media outlets reported Tsarnaeva told the Harlem woman she had "people who can go over there and put a bomb on you."Actually, I would think the number of people is slowly dwindling. But, maybe not.
The article has a very attractive photo of Ms Ailiana Tsarnaeva, who is a nice looking young woman and not some harridan.
Here is a link to the article and here is the lede:
NEW YORK (AP) — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's sister was arrested Wednesday on suspicion she threatened to bomb a woman who previously had a romantic relationship with her boyfriend. Ailina Tsarnaeva, who lives in North Bergen, New Jersey, made the threat against an upper Manhattan woman via telephone on Monday, police said. She turned herself in at a Manhattan police precinct, and police charged her with aggravated harassment.It appears Ms Tsarnaeva has already come to the attention of the police, over the passing of bad paper. This time she was issued a ticket and told to appear at a 30 September court hearing.
The question is, as people from other cultures immigrate to the United States, how long does it take them to shed their old ways of coping with problems and adopt the ways of their new nation? I would hope sociology could help us in this matter. The flip side of the question is if we will be forced to adopt the coping techniques of the new immigrants.<.p> Regards — Cliff
