The [Monday] Papers

"Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton says he's no fan of 'circus' town hall meetings and prefers a more controlled setting for town-hall-style meetings by telephone, which he will conduct on Monday night," the Tribune reports.

"Roskam said he's held only one town hall public forum during his decade in Congress representing the west and northwest suburbs and 'didn't find it particularly productive.' Instead, he said he favors conducting telephone town halls and held 11 of them last year."

"The America of the immigrant's dream is a place so big that nativism seems unimaginable. America is a dream itself, beckoning and binding unlikely brothers like 'the blacks, the Irish, Italians, Germans and the Jews' by their faith in its promise. Springsteen reminds us of reality: 'they died to get here a hundred years ago, they're dying now, the hands that build this country we're always trying to keep out.'"

But you know who was hurt more by the collapse of manufacturing than working- and middle-class whites? Urban blacks.
