    So much for 8-8-08 being lucky. The world is falling apart, leading politicians zippers can't stay up and oh yeah, this....some interesting front page choices to make for Saturday. I'm glad our Prez is having fun in China. Maybe that fence wouldn't be such a bad idea.

    From the Arizona Republic:
    Four Mexican army soldiers entered southern Arizona and pointed their rifles at a U.S. Border Patrol agent early this week, the Border Patrol said.

    The incident Sunday was the Mexican military's 43rd incursion across the U.S. border since October, the agency said. However, it was unusual because firearms were involved. The Border Patrol and the Mexican government are investigating, Border Patrol spokesman Mike Scioli said.

    Details remain sketchy, but the incident occurred at 2 a.m. on the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation about 50 miles southeast of Ajo. The incident took place just north of the border in sight of the new border fence.

    The soldiers held their weapons on the agent for several minutes until he identified himself in Spanish, whereupon they lowered their guns and walked back across a gap in the fence, Scioli said.

    Sounds like a secure border to me.

    Nothing to see here. Move along.

    I'm pretty sure I used to gamble at a place near that reservation. Shitty odds.

    The days when people aim guns at U.S. Security Officers is the day security needs to be tightened up a notch.

    I hope this doesn't drive up speculation and increase the price we have to pay for Tacos. That would made me sad.

    That would make the kid in your avatar sad, too. Assuming that's not you.

    Anyway, I for one welcome our new Mexican overlords.
