Tough Job of the Day

Is this guy. Caption reads:

An Egyptian border guard, right, tries to control Palestinians crossing the border after militants exploded the separated wall between Gaza Strip and Egypt early Wednesday, in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, Thursday, Jan. 24, 2008.

Tries to control? It looks like he's conducting. Then again, all they gave him is a twig, and chances are every man out there is armed with an AK or a missile.

"I'm talking to you, Hassam! Expect a phone call to your parents tonight. This will go on your permanent record. There will be no class trip to Williamsburg unless you all turn around, right now!"
