Radical - April 10

Radical idea of the day: just stop all this fuss about immigration. Open the borders. Make it just as easy for someone to cross a national border to go to work as it is to cross a state or county line.

And not just to go to work. Add in to go shopping or whyever else people have legitimate need to go somewhere.

Ye gods. Build a wall? Of all the stupid ideas I've heard this year, that one has to be the stupidest. Even if they who propose it do mean a fence. Still stupid.

On a related note: Those of you who demand that all immigrants learn English, remember that some of us, as adults, are not good at learning new languages. I'm one of them, and I have the college grades to prove it. Make language classes available, sure. But no requirement.

Enough for one radical day.
