    Saw a nice article on Forbes that talks about Wriston's Law.
    "Wriston said capital (meaning both money and ideas), when freed to travel at the speed of light, "will go where it is wanted, stay where it is well-treated."

    This series on your blog nicely chronicles, how the flow of ideas/talent has eventually made these execptionally skilled people an asset to the U.S.

    Tip for a good group of immigrants for Immigrant of the day features.

    The Hematology/Oncology team, especially the Bone Marrow Transplant team, at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital has lot of immigrant doctors. It is headed by Dr. Stella M. Davies (England). Other doctors include Dr. Jacob [Jack] J.H. Bleesing (Netherlands), Dr. Parinda Mehta (India), Dr. Saritha Joshi (India) and Dr. Jodelle Sonata (Lithuania), Dr. Kalfa, Theodosia (Greece), Dr. Janos Sumegi (Hungary).

    These kind people save the lifes of hundreds of kids every year who face various blood disorders.
