The state legislature of Arizona has just passed a bill to enforce genetic testing on anyone suspected of being an illegal alien.  To pass the test, the accused must match at least 98 percent of the genome of Edith Wharton.  (Her genetic material was obtained from an antimacasser she failed to launder.)  Responding to criticism that the Wharton genome would fail anyone who wasn’t of British extraction, the bill’s defenders explained, “So?”  They added that the testing would also detect extraterrestrial spies and so avert an invasion from outer space.

And let’s not forget the historic frustration of this day:
