A good looking man walked into an agent's office in Hollywood and said 'I want to be a movie star.'

Tall, handsome and with experience on Broadway, he had the right credentials.

The agent asked, 'What's your name?'

The guy said, 'My name is male organ van Lesbian.'

The agent said, 'Sir, I hate to tell you, but in order to get into Hollywood , you are going to have to change your name.'

 'I will NOT change my name! The van Lesbian name is
centuries old, I will not disrespect my grandfather by changing my
name. Not ever.'

The agent said, 'Sir, I have worked in Hollywood for
years....you will NEVER go far in Hollywood with a name like male organ van
Lesbian!

I'm telling you, you will HAVE TO change your name or I will
not be able to represent you.'

'So be it! I guess we will not do business together' the guy
said and he left the agent's office.

FIVE YEARS LATER... The agent opens an envelope sent to his
office. Inside the envelope is a letter and a check for $50,000. The
agent is awe-struck, who would possibly send him $ 50,000? He
reads the letter enclosed...
 
Dear Sir, Five years ago, I came into your office wanting
to become an actor in Hollywood , you told me I needed to change
my name.

Determined to make it with my God-given birth name, I refused.

You told me I would never make it in Hollywood with a name
like male organ van Lesbian.

After I left your office, I thought about what you said. I
decided you were right.

I had to change my name. I had too much pride to return to
your office, so I signed with another agent. I would never have
made it without changing my name, so the enclosed check
is a token of my appreciation.

Thank you for your advice.



Sincerely,
Dick van Dyke

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
