I can solve the immigrant ‘crisis’ in thirty days. You know what? I exaggerate, as it would take more like thirty minutes. Don’t worry about the undocumented worker, concentrate on the employer. Instead of rounding up millions of folks, just … Continue reading

Normally, I don’t bother locking my car when in town. Not because there’s so little theft, I have no real sense of whether thieves abound or not. I don’t lock the car because it’s an old car and was not … Continue reading

Read the whole article, not just the headline.
