I'll admit it: I'm obsessed with the border.
I recently spent time with U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials on the U.S.-Mexico border, learning how they try to keep contraband from entering the country. It was fascinating. My story about it -- Hide and Seek on the U.S.-Mexico Line -- was just published by the BBC.
And an essay I wrote about an innovative new pedestrian bridge linking San Diego with Tijuana International Airport was recently published by Boom: A California Journal.
