SOME KAUS-STYLE ANECDOTAGE ON IMMIGRATION: You don't seem to see as many Mexicans around Knoxville as a few months ago, and I noticed that the landscaping outfit that does the common areas in my neighborhood -- whose workers were all Mexican as recently as this summer -- became kind of scarce for a few weeks and is now back with workers who are all quite obviously non-Mexican. Could this be related to the jailing of a local businessman for immigration violations? Probably. It suggests that even modest enforcement efforts might have a real impact. [One observation? Is that enough to mean anything? -- ed. It's Kaus's First Law of Punditry -- "Always generalize from personal experience." Okay, so long as it's Kaus-approved. --ed.]
