      The terrorists retaliated by killing three policemen.
      16 Proposals to expand protections for guest workers include one provision to bar employers from retaliating when the workers protest and another that would let them sue in federal court over contract violations.
      (A)To expel guest workers, it is proposed that new laws be made so the employers can cancel contracts with guest workers if they protest.
      (B)Legal provisions are proposed to protect guest workers, which would allow workers to protest and to sue against their employers.
      (C)The proposed new provisions will allow the employers to retaliate in case of protest or contract violations by workers.
      (D)With the added provisions, guest workers can bring employers to justice if they are fired. A doctor friend of ours, when she’s given to philosophizing about the art of diagnosis, has a favorite saying: “If what you see are hoof prints, don’t go looking for zebras.” That’s her homespun version of the thing philosophers call Occam’s Razor: that the simplest explanation ought to prevail. A tidy sentiment. But real life doesn’t always hew to the wisdom of philosophers. As we in Dodgeville discovered when a footloose kangaroo turned up in our midst. Now, kangaroo sightings are to Wisconsin what sightings of Bigfoot are to the Pacific Northwest: more likely to be reported than confirmed. Back in the 1970s, there was a spate of sightings around the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. And another rash a few years earlier in Menomonee Falls. And so, on the morning of January 5, when a longtime resident called into our local sheriff’s office to report a kangaroo on the loose on her property, Sheriff Steve Michek had the predictable reaction: “There’s gotta be a simple explanation.” The day of the sighting, a snowfall expected to reach seven-to-nine inches had begun descending over Dodgeville. Sheriff Steve got his first glimpse of the creature through a swirl of dancing snowflakes. There he stood—big as life—with a fluffy cap of the white stuff improbably dusting his back and shoulders. Sheriff Steve says his own reaction could be summed up in two words: “Holy smoke!” Except, he says with embarrassment, he didn’t say the word “smoke.” Once backup arrived, Steve and the deputies sprang into action. Sheriff Steve: “We formed a perimeter.” With a little bit of coaxing (and a bribe of apples), the renegade was lured into a barn on the property and quietly settled down in a tidy box stall. Officials from the Henry Vilas Zoo in nearby Madison were contacted and the fugitive taken into custody. The zoo folks have since speculated that our unlikely visitor is most likely somebody’s rogue exotic pet. That would, after all, be the simple explanation. Which brings us round to the moral of our story: next time you discover some curious critter tracks outside your garden window—don’t rule out the zebras. Or the kangaroos.
