So Long, Farewell

Well, looky here. One down, 17 million more to go.

Why did the Tribune reporter say that the agents were screaming at the top of their lungs? Isn't that a little editorial and, well, just plain weird? Couldn't be a bias there, you don't think?

Later in the article, an activist asks if we want America to be the kind of country that does things like arresting people who come here illegally. The obvious answer is yes, we want the government to arrest people who break the law. As far as her boy goes - a U.S. citizen, as Alderman Munoz points out - perhaps if we adhered to the intended purpose of the 14th Amendment, the boy wouldn't have been a citizen and no one would be worrying about his fate at this moment - he'd be going back to Mexico with his mother.

There's a lesson to be learned here, and it's a fairly simple one: don't break the law.

P.S. Unrelated note: we may soon have a fourth joining us on the blog, which me and the boys sure are excited about.
