The Buzz: Organic or Inorganic

LA Times had a headline yesterday that rattled some of islanders here. It's about "Congress quietly returns to immigration: A broad overhaul failed this summer, but an array of smaller measures is under discussion, including ways to legalize certain workers."

Yes, you're right, the article was talking about the national immigration issue. Oh well...speaking of this immigration or federalization issue, we received some text messages (for the Nth time) about federal takeover and even clerics here are spreading rumors that the takeover would be an "organic" takeover, meaning, anyone on the island that is not a permanent resident would be affected by the takeover. According to the text messages, "federal officials told them this."

I guess, this is tiring and going to be an endless issue. I pity those that rely and cling on such rumors.

Well, there is nothing wrong with daydreaming it is a healthy way of detaching from reality and it is free.Cheaper than going to counselling.

" . . . rumors that the takeover would be an 'organic' takeover, meaning, anyone on the island that is not a permanent resident would be affected by the takeover."

The reason for the dearth of comments may be that the original post is incomprehensible. This reads like something one would find in the Marianas Variety!

Even a lawyer is unable to be likely to explain this one. Perhaps one of our web log hosts would care to enlighten us as to what, exactly, he meant?

Also likely to be unable. :)

There are a couple of crummy writers over there, but none of them can top Emmanuel Erediano in that category!
