What does it mean to have a frontier? If I could take me, my girlfriend, and my dog somewhere and live on our own--but that won''t happen.
Why is that? You can''t own anything, if it''s not privately owned, the government owns it!
So what is the next frontier? Might be the moon, but who the hell wants to go there?

What was the last frontier? The Great West movement, like the Dust Bowl/Grapes of Wrath type of thing.
Why isn''t there a new frontier out there? Because globalization is ruining the world.
Mary LabrecheLinguist, Albuquerque, New Mexico
What do you think about the frontier? Um...well, there was this great 24-hour restaurant called The Frontier next to my college. It was the greatest place on Earth, good hashbrowns. (Not to mention a John Wayne room.)
So what is the, uh, next frontier? The next one--well, people are going to go live underground.
Well, isn''t New Mexico kind of a frontier? Yeah, but Californians are ruining it by moving there.
