White Eldorado and more

Just went out to pick up my afternoon coffee.  On the way back, saw the most pimped out white Eldorado convertible that I have seen in some time.  Probably a '76, with very dope shiny rims and very slim tires.  Fuzzy dice on the rearview, natch.

In other news, Glen Heights' own Niklaus Steiner will be speaking on his best-selling book.  See below. A "thought-provoking textbook", as if that weren't a contradiction in terms.Everyone should turn out and pelt him with soft fruit for trying to keep this on the DL.

Niklaus Steiner discusses International Migration and Citizenship Today
 International migration has emerged in the last decade as one of the world’s most controversial and pressing issues. This thought-provoking textbook offers the reader a more nuanced and knowledgeable understanding of the complex economic, political, cultural, and moral concerns that arise when people move across borders seeking admission into other countries.
