The death of good neighborliness

Most people, when they think of areas afflicted with illegal aliens, think of the thousands of miles of border to our south. They think of big cities. They think of farms and migrant workers, construction sites, and lush landscapes needing tending.

They don’t think of tiny New England towns, towns that have such a cordial relationship with their neighbors to the north that their towns are virtual Siamese twins.

But Derby Lane, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec are finding that their historic amity and friendliness are being exploited… and might even have to tear down their joint library and opera house, where the international border is demarcated by a strip of black tape on the floor.

If you’re in the area and want to see for yourself, stop by and check it out. It looks like it won’t stay that way for long.
