#309 - Cat and Mouse
Act I is the story of a pest control guy who grabs a tape recorder and heads for the Mexican border. He spends a few nights hanging with the Minutemen as they patrol for illegal immigrants. Learn about the Minuteman project from the inside and the games they play. This is democracy at work on the front lines. Cheers to those Americans who love both homelands.
As the pressure of our world economy tightens the screws on the U.S, we need our Mexican neighbors as much as they need us. The energy spent on this cat and mouse game at the border is a distraction to much bigger problems at home.
Act II. David Sedaris tells the story of an alcoholic cat who befriends a mink and is confronted by a mouse at the prison AA meeting. David's imagery and wit will put a smile on your face.
