Let's see him pass one first...that should be worth a laugh...


when my grand parents came here in 1905, my grandfather was literate in Russian. As far as I know, my grandmother was not. He learned English as he was a young man when he came here and had to in order to work and do business and I think he eventually learned to read English or at least at some level. My grandmother loved to "read" the Sunday comics. His youngest brother wrote a book about our people and it was published! And I have an autographed copy. They were not stupid people, they were very smart people that could work hard and learn as they went along. Just like most immigrants.
