Is It Just Me...


r is there something seriously wrong here? The music today is for our birthday girl, Judy Garland, but it also could be where our border patrol is hanging out lately. Down here in Texas, we not only have the border patrol guarding our interest but we also have vigilantes now hiding out in bushes trying to catch illegals sneaking into the country. This posting has nothing to do with our southern borders. It's the border between the U.S. and Canada that concerns me.

On April 25, Gregory Despres arrived at the U.S.-Canadian border crossing at Calais, Maine, carrying a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chain saw stained with what appeared to be blood... normal vacationing items. Our border patrol tells him, that he can enter the country but he must leave his tools behind. The happy traveller says ok, and proceeds into the U.S. Oh... did I mention that the chain saw had blood all over it. I swear I am not making this up.

The following day, a gruesome scene was discovered in Despres' hometown of Minto, New Brunswick: The decapitated body of a 74-year-old country musician named Frederick Fulton was found on Fulton's kitchen floor. His head was in a pillowcase under a kitchen table. His common-law wife was discovered stabbed to death in a bedroom.

Anybody see where I am going with this? Shouldn't the sword, the knife, dagger and bloody chain saw kind of alerted the border patrol that something was amiss here? This is where I start forgetting the facts. They eventually decided that maybe there was something more to the story and they go after the guy. Duh. Despres, 22, immediately became a suspect because of a history of violence between him and his neighbors, and he was arrested April 27 after police in Massachusetts saw him wandering down a highway in a sweat shirt with red and brown stains. Just your average tourist visitng the United States.
