"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Well, that didn't take long....

“We’re suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody,” an unnamed official tells the [Washington Post].

Word was, Trump was looking to the military to house people.  They've got military bases, right?  Military bases house people, right?

To which apparently the DOD replied:  "Sure, we've got military bases.  That doesn't mean we have facilities to house families under guard indefinitely."

Trump's ignorance ran headlong into the buzz saw of reality.  The real problem is, no one in the White House had the good sense to realize this couldn't possibly work.
