I Didn't Know They Made Barn Doors That Big

U.S. to Tighten Border Controls by 2008

I can only hope they mean 8:08 PM.

In related news:

Volunteers who have converged on the Mexican border to watch for illegal immigrants are disrupting U.S. Border Patrol operations...

Given how well U.S. Border Patrol operations have worked in the past, perhaps some disruption could be a good thing. To be fair, I understand the legitimate complaints about the minions of the Minutemen Project trippping sensors and whatnot, but at the same time it must be clear that the current modus operandi for border protection is unacceptable. Maybe it would be better to coordinate and enlist the help of citiznes on the borders as is done in our cities, rather than act in a hostile manner to folks who share the same goals. They do share the same goals, don't they?
