East Campus and the wall

I actually stepped foot on Duke's East campus for the first time in 8 years. I forgot I my OU shirt was on, but I actually got a friendly comment.The transracial comment left me feeling less divided by the 3 foot wall surrounding the East campus. I saw a little girl climb on it - it's not really keeping anybody out. But it is still a divider that proclaims an us and a them - those that afford, somehow or another, to pay tuition that is more than "them" bring home in a year. Those that need tall Police contact poles and suggesting at those that make the poles necessary.

It kind of reminds me of an article on how deer still know the iron curtain border is there, even though many of them have been born after the fall of the USSR:
