Local woman wins Spotty!

Penny Van Kampen from Spotty's hometown wins a Spotty for this letter in the StarTribune:
Legal and visible

As part of Gov. Tim Pawlenty's illegal immigration initiative, maybe he could mandate a "patch program" for legal immigrants. Legal immigrants would be required to wear a patch on their clothing at all times. As Pawlenty's initiative makes all immigrants suspect, a patch program would enable the public to treat "the patched" with less suspicion.

Maybe then we will all become aware of just how many legal immigrants live, work and contribute to our communities and expose how politically exploitative Pawlenty's initiative really is.

There are examples of patch programs in history books. Pawlenty may need to do some research to get his right.
