My friend Beth over at the blog Walksonstilts recently published a post listing facts she did not know about Mexico.
#8 is “At any one time, the United States pays over 20,000 Americans to patrol its border with Mexico.”
I’d like to recommend the post to everyone; it’s clever and informative (like all of Beth’s posts), and it also contains several links with further information–very worth clicking. Here’s the link:
Beth’s post sends my mind spinning: there is so much to learn in the world. About how many topics could we create “10 things I didn’t know” lists? This wouldn’t be a bad habit for any of us to get into. Thanks for adding some thoughtful zest to our lives, Beth.
