Next month there will begin a nine month race to see if the three hundred millionth person in this country will be natural born, naturalized or just plain illegal. Odds say the person will be male, either white WASP or Hispanic Catholic, and be in the South or California. Whatever, it will show up sometime in October. Some magazine will zero in on an arbitrary date and designated time, probably broadcast the event all over the internet this person is either born, sworn in or crossing the border illegally. The it will be forty years when the population tops at 400,000,000 and everybody will have electronic chip I.D. implanted at conception, delivered and installed by nanobots.
