I just can’t bring myself to post links to any more stories about Rick Perry’s poll numbers or Mitt Romney’s campaign strategy or Barack Obama’s approval ratings.
Perhaps I just need a refreshing weekend to recover my enthusiasm for such stuff, as well as city and county election issues, environmental impact statements, etc.
One little item I am looking forward to next week: U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen will be in Whatcom County. Among other things, he will go to Lynden to talk to local farmers about labor and immigration issues. That discussion won’t be open to the likes of me, but Larsen’s staff says the Congressman and at least some local farmers will be available to discuss the issue afterwards. I plan to take them up on that.
A few weeks ago, Skagit County berry grower Steve Sakuma told reporter Rob Hotakainen that overly restrictive immigration laws run the risk of shutting down the berry industry.
