KVOA-TV -- Tucson -- October 12
    You think 3-dollars a gallon for gas is outrageous. How would you like to pay 20-dollars for a head of lettuce?
    Some farmers say that could be a possibility.
    And it could all be because of *improvements* in border security.
For lettuce to cost $5 a head, workers would have to be paid $280 per hour. At $20 a head a laborer could earn at least $1, 000 per hour.
