To validate Ms. Gardam's statement, I was a child of the British Raj in India, (Darjeeling) - sent to boarding school in England at the age of four, visited my British parents once, serving in India again at ten years old. Strangers at school and strangers at "home".

Advertising for gas fracking in Ohio on the Leonard Lopate Show? “Think about it?” I’ll think about it, not to listen to NPR.
