I don't even know what I'm going to write about yet! I've been sitting in the business group, but I'm having a hard time connecting the dots between TWIF and Yakima. I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend. I temporarily quit reading TWIF, but I finished Class Matters so...that's how things are going on the homefront.

I know exactly how you feel. I have been sitting with the education group but I'm still not exactly sure what I want to write about. But, if you want an easier topic, you could try the DREAM act or East Yakima Early Learning. I think they would be a little easier because Mr. Peters said they would be more like compare and contrast essays between what Friedman says should happen and what these programs do.

I want to write on Immigration and how Yakima will be affected if new laws help to prevent both illegal and legal migration. I think that one can't just think about closing up our borders as if the migrants were some sort of ravenous beasts trying to destroy america. The United States was established as a place for refuge for all kinds of people and cultures, not just for a specific few that think that only they "deserve" the American Dream.

I also want to write on the immigration bill and have no idea where to look information on this bill does anyone have good sources or information?

well said, Amnerica was funded as a place of refuge. A place were people from all over the world came in search of freedom and opportunity. so far it has been working pretty well and if you factor in the flattening world, shouldn't we be invinting more people to come and lead productive lives here?

The problem is that the hicks that just need something to be angry at don't know how to read so they can't understand the concept of the flattening world. It's a harsh and unfair generalization, but I guess that these over-zealous, self-proclaimed border enforcers frustrate me.
