Editor's Note: Two years ago come May my husband became a U.S. Citizen. I enjoyed helping him study for his test because it was a nice chance to be reminded of how amazing the USA really is. We are truly standing on the shoulders of giants. If you feel like a taking a little quiz, you can see if you'd pass the Civics test for Naturalization. My husband is quite proud that when asked to name one of the rights enumerated in the First Amendment, he answered "The Right of Assembly". The Immigration Officer was impressed and said no one had ever given him that answer before. Clearly, my husband assembles and not just Lego. :-)
