How Broad is Your Brush?

In Northeast, Minuteman Project finding few takers

ALBANY, N.Y. --The Minuteman Project is bringing its lawn chairs and border-watching volunteers to the Northeast starting Oct. 1, but its quest to catch illegal immigrants has a small problem.

Co-founder Chris Simcox says simply, "People on the East Coast couldn't care less."

OK, show of hands (for my east coast readers) - how many of you, if your work and family commitments would allow, would sign-up for a two-week stint on the northern border of Vermont or New Hampshire to assist in these efforts?
