Let me out, let me out!

If you've been following for any length of time, you'ld have run across a half dozen articles like this one, which compares the fence going up on the Mexican border with the Berlin wall. I hate to point out the obvious, but THE BERLIN WALL WAS NOT MEANT TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT!!! IT WAS MEANT TO KEEP PEOPLE IN!!! If you must compare the Berlin wall to something, compare it the Great Wall of China, or Hadrian's wall. Or the Maginot line, for a more modern example. None of them were terribly effective, but none of them were symbols of tyranny either.
