"That was a scary moment for me... I had gotten used to the picture of me revealing my ear, looking like Spock's sister."

-- Tracey Ullman on finally giving up her green card after becoming a U.S. citizen in 2006 -- a little bit of in-joke for fellow immigrants, required to show their right ears in the photos for their work papers. The British-born comic spoke July 4 at a naturalization ceremony for new citizens at Monticello.
