Updating listeners to goings-on with the Minuteman Project, local news has a couple of interesting items this morning:

  • Sheriffs are investigating claims that a pair of Minutemen (I hate even calling them that) detained an illegal immigrant and made him stand for a photo holding a T-shirt reading “Bryan Barton Caught an Illegal Alien and all I got was this T-shirt.” They also reportedly paid the border-crosser $20 for his trouble.
  • Asked why he is participating, one earnest man replied that it’s time to stop people from “coming up here with their failed philosophies and failed cultures and diluting our nation.” He had a pretty deep-south accent. Just sayin’.
