    Those cages, arrgh! A poverty-stricken country like Columbia and a not-that-well-off country like Brazil don’t seem to use oversized dog crates for refugees.

    OT, that is the Rio Grande?

    I remember when I first saw a river in the western half of the United States and I pretty much had the same reaction.

    I later learned that flowing bodies of water are judged to be rivers not by their volume, but rather by their length.

    Ah, that partly explains it but “Grande”? Of course, I live a few kilometres from the St. Lawrence River so I may be expecting too much.

    Just a reminder, by the time the Rio Grande gets down that far, a LOT has been taken for irrigation and culinary use. When it was originally named that was not the case.
