The only comment I can make is addressed to JM Smith, the author of this story.
I'm just wondering where you went to school that you have no other descriptive words other than 'asshole' to describe people in traffic. Amazing that this would be published with that kind of vocabulary being used. I'm no prude, and yes I use that word myself but never in a written article. Its gross and vulgar, shows lack of character and writing skills. I nearly stopped at the first paragraph when I came to that reference. Its not necessary to get your point across to use that kind of language. I hope to read better from you in the future.
Just a thought to this.. and its just my personal experience. In the 80's I lived in Salinas and shopped at the local Safeway store. I purchased a head of lettuce marked Antle farms, (which later became Tanimura and Antle) for 99 cents. I happened to travel to Sierra Vista a few days later to visit my parents and found it interesting that in Safeway in SV I paid 33 cents a head. The local growers make their money from the people closest to them. Triple the cost for a local head of lettuce in a local store that had very little shipping expense, vs paying 1/3 in a store that was 1000 miles away. Just a thought.
I had 40 acres in Cochise County, had a nice mobile home on it and it seemed to become a stop over for any illegals who wanted to break the windows and come on in for a spell. My home was broken into 3 times and I decided enough was enough. I sold the land and got rid of the personal problem of illegal activity. Its pretty sad when a home isn't even safe from being broken into just because its there. The Border Patrol are doing the best they can with what they're given, we need to back them up and call out the national guard if necessary. Our good ranchers who have lived peaceful lives for years should be allowed to continue their ways. This situation is only going to get worse. I hope to God someone will raise enough hell that something positive gets done.
