    --- A "Native" of anywhere is someone who was born there. The so
    called "NAtive Americans," meaning American Indians, also are
    immigrants. My family has been here 10 generations...before this
    country was this country. I was born here. I am, therefore, a native.
    As for hyphens...especially in a time of war there is no room for a
    half-assed committment. We must be united as Americans. Hyphens split
    us up.
