One neighbor says the rock wall looks daunting and forbidding. Another says the wall looks nice. A spokesman says the wall is designed to reduce road noise.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Mark Zuckerberg agrees. Build the wall - not the wall Donald Trump talks about. The Facebook founder is having a rock-and-stone wall built around his property in Hawaii. A spokeswoman says he wants to reduce road noise. Some neighbors complain it looks daunting. Yeah, it's a rock wall. But for whatever reason, some neighbors don't mind. Reporters found one neighbor who approves of Zuckerberg's wall. And that neighbor is a software engineer. It's MORNING EDITION.
