    generally, in terms of IT.  Most of us will accept that there is some abuse in the IT industry.  But why the fixation on patents?  Many people who apply for these visas are researchers and academics seeking to teach in the US.  My perspective on that is, well, let's recruit the best and the smartest and hope they stay in the US.  We made out pretty well before and after WWII when Europe's best scientists immigrated here, and we should leave the door open for very smart and accomplished people during happier times.

    I think your ox got gored, and you are right to be concerned.  That's fine, but the H1-B is about more than just IT.  I hope the Obama admin fine-tunes it and we can all move on.
