Reverse Flow

Now can Dou Lobbs talk about something else?

MalaquĆ­as Gaspar left his farm village in southern Mexico when the economy soured in the mid-1990s. He headed north illegally and found the proverbial better opportunity in South Florida, where he made a decent living by picking fruit and building homes.

But the U.S. economic crisis has disrupted his life and the lives of countless other illegal immigrants who are now planning to leave or have already left.

I'm so old I can remember when Dou covered business. Maybe if he'd spend the last few years covering the Wall Street menace instead of the brown menace things could've been different.
