• The Wall Street Journal reports that how in order to build the Mexican border wall, the U.S. government would have to condemn or buy thousands of pieces of private property.

A New York City man was forced to take a day off from work to appear in court for a traffic summons. He grew increasingly restless as he waited hour after endless hour for his case to be heard.

When his name was finally called late in the day, he stood before the judge, only to hear that the court was being adjourned for the rest of the afternoon and that he would have to return the next day.

“What for?!” he snapped at the judge.

His honor the judge, weary from a long day on the bench and irked by the sharp inquiry, roared in reply: “Twenty dollars! Contempt of court. That’s why.”

The judge noticed the man checking his wallet. “That’s all right. You don’t have to pay it right now,” he told the man.

The man replied, “I’m just seeing if I have enough for two more words.”
