On Grit TV Liza, from Culture Kitchen, sat down with a panel to talk about Wednesday's debate. Check it out.

Microsoft, 25 law firms and Angelina Jolie team up to represent immigrant children at Immigration Prof Blog. It's good to see people with the money and clout to step up and help doing so.

Immigration is ALL about the economy at Latina Lista. Immigration has a positive effect on the economy. Also Report on immigrants' impact on local economy underscores need for White House to retake Economics 101.

In the report titled "Nebraska's Immigrant Population: Economic and Fiscal Impacts," university researchers took an objective look at exactly what the costs were to the state for having an immigrant presence. It quantifies, for the first time, how immigrants, both legal and undocumented, don't just have an impact on the state - they have a multibillion dollar impact on the state's economy, and it's in the form of giving rather than receiving.

Scholars and Rogues reports on Joe the Plumber whose pension for embellishing the truth puts makes his republicanism more appropriate.

It turns out that Joe is not a licensed plumber and has never gone through any plumbing courses, which makes his work in Ohio illegal. His employer has a license, but not to do work in Joe's county. Uh oh. Joe also owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes and there's a lien on his property. He almost certainly doesn't have the money to buy a business (his last public report of income was only $40,000), doesn't really know much about business, and if the business he's dreaming of buying (his boss's) earns $250,000+ as he says, it must be the only two-man plumbing business in the world to do so. And, there's an outside chance that Joe is related to Charles Keating's son in law. Charles Keating is the swindler John McCain got entangled with that earned McCain a reprimand from the Senate Ethics Committee.

Gosh this is embarrassing to see my name on a headline but also a humbling moment. Thanks Kyle/Syms for noting our efforts. I got some more DREAMers to fast for at least a day. Unfortunately I have a tennis class tomorrow morning and I feel incredibly weak so I may have to take in some fruit juice and carbs tonight.

I do encourage everyone to send in messages of support to the people planning to fast for 21 days at the encampment in LA.
