Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc . . . And The Border
Headline in today's L.A. Times: "Drop in Illegal Border Crossings a Sign of Success, Bush Aide Says."
Turns out the Bush administration claims: i) illegal crossings are down; and ii) this resulted from increased border security.
Here's an alternative hypothesis: anyone who wanted to come is already here! The drop in illegal border crossings is indeed a sign of success -- the success of those who wanted to walk into our country!
