Pizzeria is immigrant success story

I realize the point of your recent article on the Michelangelo's pizza shop in Towson was to demonstrate the effect of the Super Bowl on local businesses ("Pizzerias expect a boost from Super Bowl watchers," Feb. 3).

However, it also illustrated another important story: How an immigrant in our wonderful country can play by the rules and become a success.

Shop owner Khawar Ghafoor has worked hard and done all the right things to become a true asset to the U.S. He could have sneaked in and sponged off the system like so many others, but he didn't.

My hat is off to him, his family and all the others like him. Regrettably, I don't live nearby or I would certainly patronize his business.
