USA: A Melting Pot or a Changing One?

These days reading the news coming out of the USA, it is quite evident that we no longer read names typically associated with Anglo-Saxon America.  The following is a sample of some of the names in leading news stories over the past few weeks:

Yanira Maldonado:  Arizona woman held on marijuana charges
Arvind Mahankali:  Winner of the Scripps National Spelling Bee
Tamerlan Tsarnaev & Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:  Alleged Boston Marathon bombers
Barack Obama: The first US Jewish President
Tamer Mosallam, Nozad Al Hamawendi, Cecilia Zamora, Alyahyan, teenagers involved in a recent highly publicized tragic car crash in Newport Beach in California.

A passing thought for whatever it is worth.
