“We say our children are priceless, that human life is priceless. But to some people, it isn’t,” he said.

    The question asked obviously leads to discussion about illegal immigration.

    Forgive me if I jumped the gun by assuming you are offended by illegal immigration and that illegals get what they deserve by breaking the law to begin with.

    If that is not the case, then I must apologize.

    Joanne, how in the world would you conclude that I would be happy about the black market trade in human organs from my question posed to Doug? I'm outraged by it!

    Apparently illegal immigration is just GREAT for the blackmarket trade in human organs, so Mr. Dawes and Mr. Morgan should be happy about that.

    Just imagine, 40,000 American children (citizens) would have to be abducted and cut up for spare parts to fill the gap.

    Mr. Dawes, you sir, are one of the problems that Lodi seems to ignore by your bigoted rant and this city will never change its attitude as long as the same old regime and management team control this town.
