Little Bit of This, Little Bit of That

- The genial journalist Phil Kent has been on the front lines of the immigration reform and English-language movement for many years. Go here for his latest column about in-state college tuition rates for illegal aliens.

- Re, the above: Federal law (Title 8, Chapter 14, Sec. 1623) states: "an alien who is not lawfully present in the United States shall not be eligible on the basis of residence within a State ... for any postsecondary education benefit unless a citizen or national of the United States is eligible for such a benefit (in no less an amount, duration, and scope) without regard to whether the citizen or national is such a resident."

- George Will wrote an upbeat column about Nevadan Sharron Angle (pictured). She's most eager to help Dingy Harry Reid retire. Mr. Will points out her homeschool mom bonafides. Mrs. Angle, always soundbite-friendly, thinks every state should have a Sheriff Arpaio. This writer notes that a majority of Nevada residents support SB 1070.

- How fitting! Calvin Coolidge is described as a "patron saint" for the Tea Party movement. Check out Amity Shlaes' book on this most spartan of American presidents. Coolidge made this statement in a 1923 State of the Union address: "Those who do not want to be partakers of the American spirit ought not to settle in America."
