Canyon Hike

by Kieran Healy on June 15, 2007

“Alan”:, a former student and co-author of mine (and recent graduate, congrats Alan), goes hiking in “Black Canyon National Park”: and reminds me how spectacular the American West is. Sheer canyon walls with “crazy rock climbers”:, fly-fishing for “rainbow trout”: and “terrific views”: along the way.

Tancredo, Wall-builder

by John Holbo on June 15, 2007

So I’m reading Belle’s copy of Marie Claire (June, 2007). There’s a short Q&A with Republican Presidential hopeful, Tom Tancredo (p. 216). He’s all about the immigration stuff. Example:

Q: Would you build a wall along the Canadian border, too?
A: Yes. If you don’t build strong borders, you’ve gained nothing.
