If Only We Could Start Deporting Americans...
Read the rest of my take on border security in the Boston Herald today.
I can't think of a better tribute to the Bergman film tradition--and I say this as a fan--than this film, which was nominated for an Academy Award in 1968.
From the front page of the Boston Globe-Democrat comes this truly tragic tale of woe:
When David Ludlow's wife died in a climbing accident 11 years ago, her death transformed him into a multimillionaire: He inherited Vanda Sendzimir's share of her family fortune, a $5 million trust that generates an annual interest of about $300,000. Then a freelance photographer with a passion for social justice issues, the Jamaica Plain man was plunged into a swirl of shock, guilt, and confusion.
"I've always been very left-wing politically and all of a sudden I was living incredible inequality," said Ludlow, 64. "Suddenly I was in the upper 1 percent of the population in terms of wealth, and I felt terrible about that for a long time."

That fine gentleman was David Kravitz of Blue Mass Group. It's a great source of information from the loony left.
...How come they're so dumb?

"People who had oversight over the Big Dig did a fabulous job. It's already recognized as the greatest construction project in the world. "
"Paid" volunteers are one of my public policy pet peeves. It began with President Clinton's Americorps program, which "allows" young people to "volunteer" and earn themselves thousands of dollars in cash and scholarships.
Could it be that the "Cadillac of Governors" has discovered...capitalism? Read the shocking story (OK, it's my column in the Boston Herald) here.
"As the White House was preparing its case for war, the CIA asked Wilson, a retired ambassador who had served in Africa, in 2002 to check out reports that Niger had sent materials for a nuclear weapon to Iraq. Upon returning, Wilson told the CIA he found no evidence of such a transfer. [emphasis added]. "
