The federal government has spent billions to assist those who've fled Castro's regime. It was a Cold War policy, signed by President Johnson. If they can get to our shores (many have died in the process), they have an instant pathway to citizenship. They just have to get here. And since 1995, have what is referred to as "dry feet."

Will Durst’s 2013 Political Animal Awards

Help wanted – careers in agriculture

It's graduation season for secondary and post-secondary education. Some graduates are continuing their formal education and many are looking for work.

All of those perceptions are wrong. This column isn't saying there aren't less than desirable jobs in agriculture but these jobs are shrinking as agriculture adapts to ...
