Note to Readers

Most mornings, I post my big blog by 9 a.m. and then post links to other good articles throughout the morning. This morning, however, I have a wave of commitments so I have posted everything - a commentary on nativism and two links - already. Be sure to check back at NCRToday for commentary throughout the day on important issues and breaking news.
