On a more sombre note,

On a more sombre note, Robert Locke has a pretty depressing analysis of the implications of current immigration patterns on the political process. Notwithstanding the war, the stock market and all, it is probably true that immigration will prove to be the great issue of our time in America, as it has been for a while in Europe. So far we have been proceeding on blind faith that today’s immigrants will assimilate as immigrants did in the last century. Is there any convincing evidence for this assumption? The present administration seems totally indisposed to fight on this issue, and it is hard to see anything that will stem the tide, other than perhaps catastrophic terrorist attacks. So we have little to do for the present but to have faith that the future will resemble the past.
