The Weekend Desk Report

"Political dysfunction has deadlocked a national DREAM Act that would, among other things, make federal loans available to some undocumented students and make it easier for states to charge them lower in-state tuition at public universities and colleges. But an increasing number of states have already extended those benefits, and even added scholarship support," the Hechinger Report reports.

"At least six states - California and Texas being the largest - provide some financial aid to undocumented students who meet various criteria. Some public universities in others, such as Hawaii, Illinois and Minnesota, offer aid that's paid for by private sources. In states without explicit policies, some colleges quietly create their own 'don't ask, don't tell' rules."

We're carrying the whole article this weekend, so please see "While Federal DREAM Act Stalls, Some Public Universities Already Welcome The Undocumented."

Whiskeytown: "Silver Wings" (Merle Haggard/The Knitters cover)

From the 1999 Bloodshot album Poor Little Knitter on the Road: A Tribute to the Knitters.

Says Bloodshot: "The Knitters helped open all our ears to the fact that loving country and loving punk was not nearly as crazy as it sounds."

The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "More like H&R Rock: Nothing improves the irritation of filing taxes like a good soundtrack. As we prepare to give back to Uncle Sam, Jim and Greg carry out an audit of the best songs for Tax Day. Then, they review the new album from veteran British rocker PJ Harvey."

*

Here's "The Wheel" from that new record, The Hope Six Demolition Project.

*

See also "PJ Harvey's Collaborators And Admirers On The Enigmatic Star's Artistic Genius," a fascinating look at her process that fills me with admiration.
