I've just seen today's re-run of The Colbert Report.

Ramon "Martin Sheen" Martinez:

"… getting a job was hard for Hispanics …" (or some such)


"They're calling themselves '*Latinos*,' now."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
