Something there is that doesn't love a wall...
A word for the US Senate and House, now that I've read the day's news.
I spend a lot of time these days wandering around walled places. All the rage, this wall idea.
Nine or ten centuries ago.
Thing is, once I get inside the wall the Town Hall's guided tour inevitably details all the uninvited guests who made it by the wall. I've yet to see a wall that worked.
Do we really think the best solution to our illegal immigration problem is straight out of the 10th century (or the modern Middle East, always a good example to follow), only more expensive?
A 1200 kilometre wall, with a 1,200 million dollar price tag.
Yes, in fact, that is a million dollars per half mile, more or less.
Sound like a good move to anybody else?
