    Nuance is not your friend.
    Obviously, Bob, it's a tragedy for this officer's family. Everyone also recognizes it literally strikes a little closer to home for you than the rest of us.

    On the other hand, he was a law enforcement officer. There are probably 150-200 law enforcement officers killed every year in this country, or a rate of about 1 every two days.

    Is the Arizona border land as safe as a park in downtown Des Moines? Of course not. But I'm not ready to declare it a war zone either.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

      If parts of downtown Des Moines were under the effective control of drug cartels, it'd be a different story, which is the case for parts of southern Arizona near the border. The cartels have lookouts stationed and know who moves where much better than our law enforcement officials do. There are sizable chunks of southern Arizona that are in effect no-man's land. It's an eery thing when you go to southern Arizona, as I do on occasion, and there's areas they tell you to be sure to get out of there well before the sun goes down.

        For the record I am completely on board with the proposal that we should pull all of our active duty military personnel serving overseas and station them along the Mexican border.

        Be a pretty **** sweet deal for the local economy, too.
