JAMES R. EDWARDS, JR. The same pro-amnesty senators are again pushing the same amnesty bill, the so-called DREAM Act.

THOMAS SOWELL It is hard to understand politics if you are hung up on reality. Politicians leave reality to others. What matters in politics is what you can get the voters to believe, whether it bears any resemblance to reality or not. Not only among politicians, but also among much of the media, and even among some of the public, the quest is not for truth about reality but for talking points that fit a vision or advance an agenda...
