I apologize if I overlooked the proper way to send you this message; I looked over your site but couldn’t find it. It’s probable that I am an idiot. In any case, I just wanted to say this: PoWM is a hilarious site, with a baffling window into this Great Country Of Ours and its Prideful People. I also deeply appreciate the care taken with the comments; reactions to the photos are profane, yet respectful when necessary (as in the photo of an Asian man duct-taping a hand mirror to his car’s rear-view, with direction to those craving an Asian-driver joke to have a look over at the white trash repair section). I haven’t yet read any cheap shots or ugly remarks, just natural horror at what people should not be doing in public. These photos also strengthen my resolve to hit the gym.

In years past, I have volunteered as a conversation partner for newcomers to America. I offered practice in English, explanation of idioms and customs, and general guidance. The next time I do this I will offer up this website as a precious snapshot of my people.

    You went to all the trouble “finding” us to write THAT? WHY?

    I admit that I rarely read these “comments”, preferring instead to let my jaw drop at the photos. But, my good sir Lee, you have eloquently nailed exactly why I am such a frequent visitor to PoWM.

    Lee, you seem an intelligent and eloquent gentleman. I assume you’ve never set foot in a Walmart then?

    If we were to post the “precious snapshot of my people” from this site all over the US / Mexican, Florida shorelines and US / Canadian borders with the caption: “This is the average American you will encounter, beware.”, why it would completely solve the whole “illegal immigration” thing.
