"Illustrating folly"

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

The Arizona Republic has an editorial (link) about "Illegal Immigration and Remittances For Dummies". I'm no psychologist, so I'm not going to try to figure it out:

...With this book, Mexican President Vicente Fox has unwittingly produced a powerful tool to undermine efforts by President Bush and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., to win congressional support for a guest-worker program.

Mexico's booklet on how to sneak into the United States will be distributed free south of the border. Around the Potomac, it will be priceless to those opposed to a guest-worker program because it raises serious doubts about whether Mexico will ever help curb illegal migration - even if the United States creates a legal mechanism for large numbers of workers to obtain temporary work visas...

...By treating its citizens as an exportable commodity, Mexico waves goodbye to the kind of ambitious, resourceful citizens it needs to build a stronger Mexican economy...

... This comic book approach is not only an international flop. It's an illustrated guide to Mexico's domestic failures.

The Arizona Republic was all but an announced opponent of Prop. 200. So, one might wonder what they're really upset about. Have they finally seen the light? Or, are they just upset with Mexico for making a tactical error?
