Real Genius

As the FNG at this superb site, I'm still learning the ropes and wanted to see if I could post images.

We learn from the Toronto Sun that Shera Bechard, citizen of the Dominion of Canada and former "girlfriend" of Hugh Hefner, has been admitted to the United States on an O-1 visa. The O-1 visa allows individuals of "extraordinary ability" to come to the United States for up to three years. It is often referred to as the "genius visa."

Among her other extraordinary accomplishments, Miss Bechard was "Miss November" in 2010 and started an online photo sharing craze called "Frisky Friday" through which women were encouraged to post photos of themselves in their underthings. On Fridays. Aside from the alliteration, we fail to understand the extraordinary nature of her abilities in this area, but back to our quest to successfully post a (tasteful) image on this site. We found ourselves unable to accomplish this, and resort to a link for your perusal to evaluate Miss Bechard's extraordinary qualifications for her visa:

SFW Link

We suppose that is genius, of a sort, but given the doctrine of stare decisis we are now wondering if most of the O-1 grants for the year are going to go to attractive women who are willing to disrobe for all the world to see.

Just askin'.

UPDATE: (jk -- let me help with that embed, code, EW...)

I'll let all the Tancredoite nativists provide good reasons for keeping Ms. Bechard out. Open borders for me!

Honest - yes, I subscribe to ThreeSources, but only for the articles.

Thank you, brother jk! That improved the post considerably.

I'm not sure why. I always read ThreeSources for the articles.

And yet another citizen remains unemployed (or underpaid (underdressed?)) as this immigrant takes the job that might have belonged to a card carrying member of the booby union.

Welcome Ellis! (My favorite character in the book.)

Thank you, Terri! Of course, there are a lot of people to like in the book but I love the way Wyatt goes on strike. Also, Ellis is so curt and harsh when he meets Dagny I think she wants to sleep with him.

Johngalt may have something to say about that 'round these parts.

Boulder Refugee, you tryin' to stir up trouble?

Brother jg, the references are entirely to the characters in the fictional universe of Atlas Shrugged. Any resemblence to actual persons, living or dead, is thoroughly disavowed by the Secretary.
