Immigration reform came up during the President Obama's State of the Union message last night, but there was no great sense that this mere mention will lead to action. Here is the link to the full text of the address:

The opponents of action are out of excuses. We should be working on comprehensive immigration reform right now. But if election-year politics keeps Congress from acting on a comprehensive plan, let’s at least agree to stop expelling responsible young people who want to staff our labs, start new businesses, and defend this country. Send me a law that gives them the chance to earn their citizenship. I will sign it right away.

That hardly seems promising, does it? A great link to the meat of the SOTU, such as it is, can be found at The Washington Post Wonkblog

USA Today has just published an editorial about food safety audits, and the "opposing view" was offered by PMA's Bob Whitaker.
