It was a game of “catch me if you can” with the U.S. Border Patrol—and the guards couldn’t win. Just over a year ago, a man traveled by car along a stretch of Canadian road so close to the U.S. he could cross the border by hopping a roadside ditch. He stopped at what looked like an unmonitored area, left the car, and crossed over carrying simulated radioactive material in a red duffel bag. He walked several hundred feet into the U.S., returned to the Canadian side and waited 15 minutes for a response from law enforcement. None came.  [Business Week]
