Opening Arguments

Open-door policy

The horse died, Mike; leave it alone:

Sen. Mike Delph (R-Carmel) today filed what he calls "one of the toughest illegal immigration bills in the country" aimed at punishing those who harbor, transport or employ illegal immigrants in Indiana.

Even if it passes the Senate, the House, which wasn't interested last year, won't be this year, either. Also not likely to get anywhere this year: constitutionally defined marriage or a statewide smoking ban. People who get exercised about these things talk about how they will make the state look to those thinking of coming year. If we antagonize gays, the creative class won't come here. Push the illegal-alien stuff, and Hispanics will go to Ohio instead.

Any of you know of any gay, Hispanic smokers, tell them the door is open
