Steven Colbert Testifies Before Congress

Now, granted, this got the publicity it deserves, but why does it take a celebrity endorsement for people to take notice of situations like this? Why is this not more readily covered by the media than the latest celebrity divorces, weddings, arguments, fights with Paparazzi, or simply who is doing what crazy thing. We hear more about Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan than we do about the working poor, the homeless, or even this topic, which is the life of illegal immigrants picking our fruits and vegetables on farms here in U.S. I remember when I was young, in Girl Scouts, we used to go and collect large cardboard boxes (refrigerator boxes) for the migrant workers to use as shelter. That was back in the 1970's.
