Ever notice how really good yards have fences?

In response to the suggestion that a fence be erected alone our southern border, the San Francisco Chronicle puts an environmental reporter on the beat. The resulting article comes down hard on the environmental destruction sure to result from such a project. Writer Eileen Zimmerman lovingly takes readers to a pristine wilderness, home to countless species and fragile native vegitation.

I'm all for hiring the disabled, but for this story you need a reporter who hasn't lost her vision. Those familiar with the landscape surrounding prime southern border crossing can attest that the Chronicle account is lunacy. The first thing most people would note is the litter of cans, water bottles and clothes. The environmentally correct thing to do is build the fence.
