Shoehorned in with my other tasks this week, I’m trying to learn a little something about SB1070, Arizona’s newest immigration law.
Why? you ask. Just good citizenship?
Well, no, but it’s nice of you to ask. Actually, in two days I’ll have to demonstrate at least a drowsy familiarity with the statute’s elements. Because on Saturday morning, I’ll be moderating a panel discussion on the law.
Well, I have to get back to work, so I’ll just give you the event information. Stop by if you have questions—or statements.
And if you want to suggest any questions for me to pose, post them in the comments or send them to me at email@example.com.
