  • About the Edition

    When 9/11 struck, Ben Batchelder was living overseas. Dumbfounded, he wondered: How could he help? After leaving his marriage and cozy corporate career, he returns to the U.S. with an outlandish plan: to protect the country by car, driving a silver-plated VW Beetle as close to the remote borders as possible, without getting arrested. Along the way he gets to know his beloved country again and meets many unheralded borderlanders, whose stories of hard work, perseverance, and patriotic hope go well beyond the usual headlines. Instead, he finds that the nation"s edges reveal much about its core - and in the process comes home to an overwhelming sense of gratitude.

A team of Vatican investigators descend upon a church in a remote area to demystify the unusual happenings, but what they discover is more disturbing than they had first imagined/10(K).   If the land near the border can be owned privately, what's to stop a fund from developing to buy that land and build it's own fence and hire it's own guards to keep people off it's property? I'm beginning to think this situation is hopeless due to the vast differences in political activism. And the problem is, it's on the other side of the border that we can't affect unless, GHW Bush goes.
