A migrant blogger, I am. A refugee from the doomed Live Spaces that was MSN’s. Why they’re closing it, I do not know. I doubt that Microsoft is running short of funds or server drive space. Perhaps they experienced constant problems because they tried to run it on Windows.
So, like a migrant field worker I must cross the border from the empty Spaces, wordily pressing on, driven to assure the survival of ideas.
My metaphor is not meant to make light of the plight of a real migrant worker. On the contrary, I support their cause. No human being should ever be called “illegal” just for being where he or she is and needs to be in order to work for a living.
Those who speak of securing borders are barbaric mongers of xenophobia, which they usually exploit for political gain. Arizona, my state of residence, contains more than its share of such politicians, like Jan Brewer
