Shall we enter this "political thicket"?

The Observer, Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College's student-run newspaper, ran a political cartoon on Friday you can find here. It made me go "Hmmm."

Hmmm.

Go Chai and some other ND law students for doing more than just saying "Hmmm."

I drove by a pretty sizable rally in front of City Hall in Main Street today. It was about immigration, but I don't know exactly what the point was. There were a bunch of white people (at least, the ones I saw with these signs were white) holding signs like "Keep the South Southern" and stuff not-very-nice-sounding directed at illegal immigrants, but then there were a bunch of Hispanics and other non-white people. I tend to assume that they were a little more favorable toward immigration than the first group. I think that one group must have been there to rally and the other there to protest the rally, but I don't know which was which. (Haven't read the news yet...)

Thanks so much, Becca! And I'm sure that you would have been there had we been better about publicizing the event. :-) Maybe next time.

Uh, wait, I don't want there to be a next time!
