Where did they go?

Just a quick comment on the Day Without Immigrants on Monday. One thing seems to be certain - but for some Mexican restaurants and a few other non-essential businesses, it was a Business as Usual Day. We can draw two conclusions, which are not mutually exclusive, about that. One is that illegal immigrants decided not to draw attention to themselves, which generally is a good idea if your status begins with that word. The other is that people in that category decided that whatever they want to accomplish, being loud and obstreperous is not the way to accomplish it. Especially if they just wish to be left alone. Which is likely what most of them would like see happen. Really.
