Over the Rainbow

Tom Ridge, Minister of Paranoia Secretary of Homeland Defense will resign. Another Orwellian nightmare domino has fallen. C’mon Rummy, sack up and join the retireess

As nice as it was to bump Tom Ridge’s ass out of the governor’s mansion in Pennsylvania, the oompa loompa terror warning level was a bad joke. The premise was flawed from the beginning – there will NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER be blue or green.

Think about it. Would you ever publicize to your opponent what your plan is? Would you ever, except in the face of peace or treaty tell your opponent that you are less vigilant?

Blue and green “warning levels” are like a big “kick me” sign or a double dog dare. I have no problem with waking up from our sometimes irrational national paranoia, but it’s not something to broadcast.

Back to the point, c ya Tom. don’t let the door hit ya…
