A.M. Chaplin and Amy Davis' cover story this week deals with the immigrant's American dream: finding freedom and economic security in this great land of ours. Although it's not part of the main story, A. M. Chaplin was struck by, as she puts it, the immigrant's other American dream -- "The dream of the home left behind and the feelings denied in the desire to become good Americans."What got her thinking about it was a conversation she had with Elmira Pritsker, one of the subjects of our cover story.

Amy Davis : Sun Staff Jodi Ceglia keeps her wrapping paper neatly organized, and uses a wristband tape dispenser. [Wrap, from Page 1n] stuffing a bit of gold tinsel into the top and enveloping the package in a garland of gold stars. Then, lacking a plume of gold ribbon, she folds another sheet of paper into a fan and fastens it behind the neck of the wrapped bottle. The final effect is a bit eerie, as if a brilliant miniature ninja had just sprung from Ceglia's rustic dining room table.

A pat on the back for the uplifting story on the Institute of Notre Dame mentors ("Then, I fell in love," June 11) and compliments to the photographer Amy Davis for the picture of those beautiful smiles on the girls.

When it comes to photographing presidents, the Secret Service makes showing up very early a necessity. When President Bush recently visited the Naval Academy in Annapolis to deliver a speech on the war in Iraq, the media were instructed to arrive before dawn. The Sun used a photo of midshipmen listening attentively to Bush, but an image I captured of the Mids waiting for him to arrive offered an amusing, offbeat view. While I was waiting, I also saw Jennifer Ziehl, who runs the production company hired to erect the "Plan for Victory" stage set, vacuuming the stage where the president would speak.
