Walling Ourselves In

You know the allusions to the Berlin Wall are coming, so bad comics and even worse pundits beware! I said it first before it's even erected: "Mr Bush, tear down this wall!"

Now can we get on to serious conversations why this is genuinely a horrible idea and why Fortress America is stupid and self-defeating for a country that's supposed to stand for openness and democracy?

There has to be another way.

P.S. I should be clear -- thank you Bob -- that President Bush signed a bill that will lead to the construction of a 700 mile long fence, not a wall. Nevertheless, it serves the same purpose, only in a more cost-effective manner.
