… kill all those weeds on the bottomland, that is. They mess up the clover and alfalfa we’ll be planting next month.
Looks like the Border Patrol is ready to head to the killing fields too — they’re not after illegal aliens, they’re after alien plants — carrizo cane, which also happens to be Hispanic (it was brought in by Spaniards centuries ago). So they’re looking to drop some serious weed-killers on the vegetative malefactors.
Well, unsurprisingly this has raised quite a ruckus down on the Rio Grande.
My prediction: those alien weeds are going to be around for a long, long time.11:28 am on March 24, 2009 Email Christopher Manion
