Cape Canaveral, Florida, (IP) - A weather satellite launched by intoxicated technicians has been unable to detect a border line between Mexico and the United States. Scientists are unsure if this is an artifact of the resolution capabilities of the satellite's optical system or whether the intoxicated launch crew forgot to activate something on board the 400 million dollar spacecraft.

Another troubling possibility is that vandals or politicians may have removed the dotted border line when no one was looking. It is thought that the vandals motive for this criminal mischief might simply have been because it was a fun thing to do.

The reasons why politicians would have this done are much more sinister. The politicians, it seems, could "kill many birds with this one stone" . Allowing aliens illegal entry from one country into another could lead to divisions and strife and xenophobic friction which would keep the underclass too busy fighting and divided among themselves to take notice of what ne'er-do-well politicians might be up to like corruption, stealing, helping themselves to benefits unavailable to most and a million other schemes. Illegal aliens work for less money and these savings are not passed onto consumers and thus benefit large corporations and businessmen friendly with the politicians.

The satellite's cameras will be trained onto other geographic locations to see if the same phenomena might be present elsewhere.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
