The Other Side of Immigration

As the US agonizes over the issue of immigration by working class Mexicans, there is another side to the entire question. From Deutsche Welle via Medienkritic: "Every seventh person with a doctorate in science leaves Germany for the United States."

I'm formatting a bunch of drives today, so my attention is totally fragmented as I wander back and forth from the machine room to my office. So I stumbled into the office to check my email and phoen messages, saw this up on the screen, and said "That's great, I'm going to have to put that on...", clicked the back arrow, and found it already was. Thanks. Great article.

What I'd like to see is a way that we can educate the populations of countries with lots of people escaping to the U.S. that governments that promote policies that encourage retention and celebration of those who want to excel is a good thing. Heck, if we can start with that in assorted regions of the U.S. maybe we can stop some of the rush to the coasts and the massive overpopulations in otherwise inhospitable areas (ie: California).
