A 52 foot semi-trailer load of fresh water, diapers, food, blankets and
other disaster relief destined for Moore, Oklahoma has been stuck at the
US/Canadian border since Wednesday night because the US border guards
won't let it through.
Apparantly, it can't be let in as humanitarian aid because President
Obama hasn't declared Moore, Oklahoma to be a disaster zone.
So, US border guards are treating the shipment as a commercial
importation, and they want each of the items on board listed in
alphabetical order along with the country of origin. (That is, the
country in which each item was manufactured.)

I can't see why they can't just put a GPS tracking device on the truck
to confirm that it goes to Moore, Oklahoma. Everything there is smashed
up, so it's not like the truck is going there to steal anything.
