"What we're doing is making sure that we have a safe and secure border region from San Diego all the way to Brownsville.

But as far as shooting down there, we get amazing locations, and the crew is really, really stellar down there. They are really fun."
"I woke up full of hate and fear the day before the most recent peace march in San Francisco. This was disappointing: I'd hoped to wake up feeling somewhere between Virginia Woolf and Wavy Gravy."
