I looked out over the sea of down-and-outers in our church basement Saturday night as they ate a hot meal and waited for their free bags of groceries and bus passes. I especially concentrated on those in their 30s, 40s and 50s, many of whom have hardly held down a job in their adult years -- living dependent, unproductive and sadly unfulfilling lives. Often, the road to these lives was paved during their late teens and early 20s when they found no hope in the job market. This is why I focused most of my attention on joblessness in the 18-29 age group in my appearance last week before a select panel of Colorado leaders at the Denver University.

WASHINGTON AND JEFFERSON COLLEGE, Pa. -- Just finished a 9-person immigration debate here after doing a live interview on the Glenn Beck Show from a studio in downtown Pittsburgh (if you wondered what the Iron City skyline was doing behind me during my appearance). I'm on to Colorado tomorrow for a Thursday morning debate appearance at Denver University. Did phone interviews with newspaper reporters through each airport as everybody is wondering why in the world would the nation's union leaders take a stand to keep 7 million unemployed Americans from getting a job.
