I dunno, they talk like letting an Ay-rab company manage our ports would be some gross breach of security.
Everyday I get up and mark another day on the calendar -- one more day without the 32-foot Chris Craft motoring into the marina at Battery Park City and letting go with A Big One.
Don't get me wrong. I'm glad this thing has blown up in Bush's face, but only because it brings the issue of port security back onto the front burner.
But Bush is right. It doesn't matter.
The reason it doesn't matter is not the reason he gives for it not mattering, though.
The reason it doesn't matter is because people are behaving like we're putting the local Saturday-Night-Specials dealer in charge of the metal detector at school when there isn't any metal detector. What the hell difference does it make who we put in charge of something that isn't even there?
For six years the "adults" have been in charge. Wow. Am I glad, or what?
