I’m not sure what to think about building a wall around our southern U.S. border. Thank goodness you don’t have to think about it. There are plenty of people who have already done that job for you.

All you have to do is sit back and listen to them argue.

The very idea of a wall may hurt the feelings of prospective immigrants, but they’ll get over it.

The wall does cause me some degree of concern. Walls to keep people out will also keep people in.

Traditionally, south of the border has been the destination of outlaws. Let’s say you make a small, unauthorized withdrawal of several hundred thousand dollars from a local financial institution, and decide to take an extended vacation.

A small, remote Mexican town located on the beach alongside the Gulf would be ideal. If you make it there, you can live like a king for the rest of your life.

Everything’s going fine. The guards at the legal border crossing might be on the lookout, so you’re going to have to take a little detour through the desert.

Thank goodness for four wheel drive.
