Global A Go-GoGlobal A Go-Go: Friday July 4, 2014

It happens that I live in a Congressional district (Virginia's 7th) where the key issue in the recent Republican primary was immigration — not the economy, not unemployment, not healthcare.  Here's a quick summary: the incumbent disliked immigration and wanted to make it more difficult, the challenger disliked it even more.

As the grandson of Italian immigrants (some of them illegal, even under the relatively relaxed laws of the early 20th century), I find both of those candidates' points of view repugnant.  I think immigration is one of the main things that makes America great, and I think we ought to encourage more of it.

Since I've got the floor for two hours on the 4th of July, I'll use it to do a radio show on this subject — two hours of great American music made by people who emigrated to America.  Or if you prefer, you can call it two hours of music Dave Brat doesn't want made in America.
