when political borders don't follow cultural and ethnic geography, conflicts arise and the border shifts over time.

"Some people will insist that this is Manzano's choice to make, that it was his sweat and sacrifice that got him to London, and this was his victory to celebrate however he saw fit. Those people are wrong. They're focused on the individual. But the last thing the Olympics is about is the individual.

It's about being part of a team -- the U.S. Olympic team. It's about national pride, not ego. Manzano wasn't there to compete for himself but to represent his country. All he had to do was decide which country that was. He chose not to choose."

He didn't build that!

"when political borders don't follow cultural and ethnic geography, conflicts arise and the border shifts over time."

can you elaborate on your point here? is it:

a) that the Southwest was originally Spanish/Mestizo and because the border never truly fit (U.S. border pushed too far South) this was inevitable.. i.e., what the "reconquista" movement has been saying for years.

or

b) that the migration back into the US of Mexicans/South Americans is causing this.
