Divisive Barriers

Will the metal and concrete fence proposed to be erected along the U.S.-Mexico protect the United States, cut crime, and reduce the threat of terrorism? Is this measure “xenophobic” and “disgraceful,” as the Mexican government alleges? When I think of such barriers, the Berlin Wall or the DMZ between North and South Korea comes to mind.

  • This seems like a good use of money. But if we're building a fort, we need a better name than the USA. Our clubhouse needs something more fun like The Cat's Lair in ThunderCats. So we'll just call it the Cat's Lair and G.W. can be our Snarf because Snarf was so goddamn annoying. I'll be Panthro because he was the least lame.
