And?

I made a mistake there.

His parents were immigrants, and for someone from an unknown people to become a great American Novelist, that is a great accomplisment.

LoL wow...a Pulitzer prize?

That is preety good for an Armenian.

IMHO, I believe it is better to act and feel Armenian, along with your friends, rather than publicise on the matter...

Armenians these days...tattooing Armenian Pride on themselves and driving 1,000 Dollar Vehicles with 4,000 Dollar Rims...

Ironic...Correct my spelling please...

oh ya tell me about the tatooe part, my cuzin did that and I was mad at him for a long time........tsk tsk tsk lol :lol: hey nice cars are nice...im going to be honest my cousin just got a new caddy with rims it looks nice but the tatooe has 2 go lol ;) B)

Drive a nice car, no1 is saying anything...

But be sure you have the wallet for such a luxury...

Armenians, they will buy Benz, and be on welfare...

Now tell me, is that right?

No, that's not right at all, those people should be deported if they are scamming the system. But that's just a small percentage of the Armenian population, and they are only the newly arrived immigrants. The vast majority of Armenians are fiscally responsible.

Armenians aren't the only once guilty of this crime. I recently saw this lady paying by food stamps at the market (no she wasn't Armenian). But drove away in her brand new Benz.

So what...that shows how low armenians have gotten...

once armenians were high tippers (in soviet union) armenians and georgians (caucasians) were known all throughout the land for being BIG TIPPERS, and every restaurant knew how to sing georgian and armenian songs...because we were like that...

I do not know what capitolism has done, but the great tippers, are now the greedy bastards...

This is a 1964 photo where Saroyan is shamelessly checking out Rosy Armen in front of camera. smile.gif And to say the truth, she's irresistable.

Fascinating story
But when Mampre and his family landed at Ellis Island in May of 1921, they were turned away for reasons still unclear. They decided to settle in La Merced, Mexico along with 200 other Armenians.
That’s where Dr. Tony Saroyan’s grandfather Dr. Suren Saroyan grew up and adopted much of the culture. “Armenians had to assimilate to Mexican culture because there were no Armenian churches, no Armenian schools,”
