Have you ever wondered why you don't ever see on TV the so called victims of the immigration debate? You never see Lou Dobbs and company trot out the American that says that he can't find a job busing dirty dishes back to the kitchen. Or the fella that complains because he can't get anyone to hire him so he can lug an 80 pound bag of roofing shingles up a ladder. We haven't seen the American step forward and say he wants to operate a leaf blower in 95 degree weather 10 hours day, but can't because paperless folks are getting all the leaf blower jobs. Where's the American that wants to show up at a downtown office building with a bottle of 409 that will clean the offices from 8 pm to dawn? Do these Americans even exist?
So far, the other side hasn't put forward the face of their story. So it is race.
From where we sat, CZ wasn't overpowering - in fact, the Astros put the wood on the ball, it just landed in Cubbie gloves all night. Last night's Drayton guest list included the CEO of the Baylor College of Medicine and the fella that developed the frequent shopper card - you know the cards that you have on your key chain for grocery stores.
