Border crossing
By Hunter Davis


February 25, 2006

With all of the troubles that can occur at a border crossing, let's just add thousands of South East residents having to enter Canada to get home or visit south. How many residents, right now, can reach over to the file drawer next to the desk and pull out a valid passport? Passports are on track to becoming mandatory, no exceptions.

Somehow, having to enter a foreign country to get home bothers the heck out of me.

If you are already here, be prepared to stay here. If you are not, stay away. Is that the message?
