James, a little off topic, but hopefully something you'd like to answer nevertheless. I know you're a pilot and I always enjoy your aviation writing. I just got my SPL last year and fly out of W29. I'm wondering if you have any advice for young pilots (I'm 27) as someone who, like me, didn't go through military training.

I don't get to fly that often -- I live and work in DC. SPL is pretty much the only type of aviation I can afford, but with the SFRA I have to drive out to Stevensville, MD which is just barely outside it. Hopefully at some point in the near future I'll be able to do more training and fly more often (by moving to another city and progressing in my career), but I can't help to think that's this hobby is really hard to get involved in so young. But I love to do it when I can!

I always think it's funny to see news reports about immigration where they use footage showing the border with Mexico. Immigration is so much more than that and I think you and the March for Innovation serve an important role in trying to change those perceptions. Question: What other common misconceptions do you think Americans have about immigrants and the U.S. immigration system?
