Welcome back to the 7-11, day laborers

Demonstrating the same kind of attack-the-supply thinking that has helped us be so successful in fighting the War on Some Drugs, the Herndon council has decided to start requiring the day labor center run out of the old police station to check the immigration status of workers who show up. Since the current organization running the center, Project Hope and Harmony, know they don’t work for INS they’ve refused to do so and will be replaced.

I look forward to the imminent return of rule of law, since once this is done we can expect that all the illegal workers will just leave the country and those jobs will instead go to all the people on welfare. Because “people wouldn’t be sitting around collecting welfare checks if illegal immigrants weren’t taking the jobs they are perfectly happy to do.

I think this is gonna cure cancer too. And insomnia.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
