"It looks like it was destined for people who wanted a taste of the old country," he added.
Whole story–and a terrifying 2003 tale of smuggled bologna–here.
Here's hoping the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps can straighten out their dubious finances in time to ward off this newest threat from south of the border.
And while we're waiting for that to happen, grab a bag of chips and some chile con queso and dig into Reason's special immigration section in our Aug-Sept ish, which we've put online right here.
