"PORT TOWNSEND, WA (MarketWatch) — The U.S. is flying Predator drones in the Midwest along the Canadian border. And word is now out that Washington is considering putting up a border fence in some areas of what has long been called “the world’s longest undefended border.”

The days of red plastic traffic cones being placed at the border in rural areas to let motorists know they’re entering the neighboring country are, alas, long gone. The term increasingly used these days is that the U.S.-Canada border has been considerably “thickened.” This is having a noticeable impact on tourism and trade. "
