Bites

Jon Stewart explains the Republican embrace of immigration reform.  (Video Clip) You know as soon as you see his name, that anything from Jon Stewart is going to be a bite.  The Washington Post.

Drink Up: The Justice Department just came out in favor of cheaper beer. The Justice Department's new antitrust chief, William Baer, that the government will no longer turn a blind eye to excessive industry concentration.  The Washington Post.

Bits

The "Sandwich" Generation.  73% of adults in their 40s and 50s who have at least one child age 18 or older, have provided at least some financial help in the past year to at least one such child. Many are supporting children who are still in school, but a significant share say they are doing so for other reasons. (The Washington Post)

How long is the immigration 'line'? As long as 24 years.   "For those applying for work visas because of their "extraordinary ability," including high-ranking professors and international business executives, there is virtually no wait time. By contrast, a brother or sister of a U.S. citizen from the Philippines applying for a family-sponsored visas may have been waiting 24 years..." The Washington Post.
