Put up a 20-foot wall, the stores will be stocked with 21-foot ladders.

I went to a birding festival in Brownsville last year and the guy from the 
Chamber of Commerce talked about what a nice relationship his city has with 
Mexico.  The Mexican people cross over to work for the day, then go back 
home to their families.  Everybody wins.  Of course, that's not the complete 
story as we observed some hiding behind bushes ready to swim one day.  But 
that cooperative relationship is the majority and that is threatened as well 
as the whole environmental picture.

What a stupid idea.
