Having just written "emigration, vs. immigration" in my last post, I found this little piece in the Mail Tribune of southern Oregon amusing. A reader named Ruth sent in a question to a "Since You Asked" column inquiring about the terms emigrant (one who leaves his/her country to settle in another) vs. immigrant (one who arrives in a new country to live) after visiting a place called Emigrant Lake. From the answer:
'Jack and Jill emigrated from the valley when they immigrated to the hill'
