Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Annex Mexico!

That's the suggestion of Glenn Reynolds, who identifies one of the key reasons America has illegal immigrants:
In fact, they're leaving Mexico because its corrupt and thuggish political culture stifles economic growth and opportunity. The people there are smart and hardworking, after all, and they tend to do just fine when they get here. They're leaving because being smart and hardworking is enough to get you ahead in the United States, but not in Mexico.

I would love to see Mexico embrace a culture where civil servants do not take bribes, where access to markets is not restricted to those with connections, and all can work to improve their lot in life.
