Somebody checked their email

in the State Department, and realized GE was upset. Six days ago, GE's CEO echoed Bill Gates in a call for immigration policy reform as the bright stars in engineering and science were heading elsewhere. Not good. But when Gates bitched about it, nobody really cared (which is odd, though typical). GE, on the other hand, bitches, and less than a week later, the State Department does its bidding. I guess whoever handles these things was on vacation and just checked their email, but regardless of why it was done, it needed to be done. Liberals may whine, but this is good for the ol' US of A.
