MacGyveresque

Close, but no MacGyver.

The border fence battle is heating up, with about 100 Texans refusing to let surveyors onto their land. What is wonderful about this fence plan is that it wasn't the brainchild of a sentient pile of bricks, but actual adult human beings acting in a leadership capacity. Besides the obvious, "now we just bring a pair of wire cutters with us" solution that immigrants might somehow stumble upon as they come north to do all the jobs we don't want anymore, I again laughed out loud at a seemingly unrelated story that might actually be a more realistic solution: For every 10,000 people that come into our country illegally, we'll send you one crazy MacGyveresque murdering Marine to balance things out. It's cheaper than a fence, and at least one percent more effective, if such vagaries are indeed quantifiable.
