“Things I‘d Like To Post About Today; But I Don’t Have Any Time ‘4‘”:

  • Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, front page, “Crossings By Migrants Slow as Job Picture Dims” — As others have noted (here and here, for starters), improved enforcement and the perception of improved enforcement. An even bigger factor is tough leglislation passed in Arizona relating to employer verification. But a dimming “job picture”? Give me a break. Arizona, whose tough law went into effect January 1, saw unemployment drop from 4.3% to 4.0% in February. Looks like they found some citizens to do the jobs illegals aren’t allowed to do.
  • Katherine Kersten at yesterday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune, “Wall of silence broken at state’s Muslim public school” — a Muslim charter school in Minnesota is said to be blatantly violating guidelines relating to religious content using state dollars. This is an issue in Ohio, as Patrick Poole has noted from time to time.
  • Mark Finkelstein at NewsBusters — Chris Mathews for US Senate?
  • Allah, at Hot Air yesterday — Paul Weyrich wasn’t just for the recently released ad arguing against Objectively Unfit Mitt Romney, he was a signer of the ad’s statement. Now he’s disavowing it. Huh?
  • The Mark Steyn/MacLean’s case has been dismissed. Steyn writes: “So in effect the Ontario ‘Human Rights’ Commission, the world leaders in labiaplasty jurisprudence, have decided that, even though they don’t have the guts to hear the case, they might as well find us guilty. Ingenious!” For the umpteenth time, where in the bleep is Stephen Harper in all of this?
