Dear GOP, Cubans Are Not Mexican

Due to an act of Congress, Cuban nationals who arrive in the U.S. after 1959 cannot be illegal immigrants. They're automatically refugees. It's amnesty! 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

Hey! You! Yes, you. Sorry. Just trying to get your attention to impart an important warning here. For the next couple weeks, it's imperative all you good folks out there stay alert and keep your wits about you. Remove the earbuds, no texting while walking, and you'd be well-advised to brandish a stainless steel umbrella on the street because it's awards season and golden-plated statuettes are being tossed about like manhole covers during an underground methane explosion. We've made it through the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, with the Grammy Awards and Oscars ...

Also discussed were the effects these changes had on the practice of agriculture. Now, let's wrap it up and discuss how these changes changed agricultural producers themselves.

How about those hawks?

If you have been out and about during the past couple of weeks, you might be tempted to classify the bird life as somewhat boring. The Bottoms are essentially frozen. Geese have a few spots open, and the ducks are mostly Mallards. I counted 14 eagles on the ice a couple of days ago. They follow the waterfowl with great intensity, and several were feeding on geese carcasses within 50 yards of the resting geese. I always wonder if the geese are upset by watching their cousins become lunch. It is exciting to see the geese launch when the eagles ...
