In praise of the International Boundary Commission

intcommYou learn something new everyday. This funny YouTube video alerted me to the existence of the International Boundary Commission, which maintains the border between the US and Canada – the border being a twenty foot-wide gap extending across two-thirds of the American continent. It seems that guys with chain saws spend their working lives walking along the border and chopping off errant saplings which threaten to muddy the Canadian/US border waters.

You couldn’t make it up.
