"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Illegal Immigrants Trapped After Man Becomes Stuck in Pipeline


According to the LA Times:

"More than a dozen illegal immigrants were briefly trapped inside a cross-border pipeline structure Tuesday after a man got stuck in the narrow passageway and had to be rescued by San Diego firefighters.

The immigrants were crawling through a passageway connecting a Mexican-based industrial gas supplier with a holding tank on the U.S. side, said Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
Headline: "illegal immigrants," in the article they metamorphosize into "immigrants" then "migrants;" seven of which were apprehended with the belief being the others returned to Mexico.

Do they have some PC rule at the Times that says they have to use all these different terms for "illegals" in each article written?
