  •  that bear's in another county by now (none)
    The DHS approach to this shit reminds me of a story fom my activist youth. In the late 70's, in company with another Kos community member who shall remain nameless, I drove to Rocky Flats CO from my native SF Bay Area to protest at the nuclear weapons plant there. We drove a car loaned by a prosperous sympatico who could not make the trip, which was equipped with the ultimate hip high-tech item of the time, CB radio. Wanting to bond with my working-class trucker brothers, I gleefully issued "breaks" on every "smoky" I saw for 1500 miles. After one of these urgent bulletins, an incredibly world-weary voice came back on the radio: "That's the kind of break that makes me sick to my stomach. That goddam bear is in another county by now". Listening to Tom Ridge, I'm finally bonding with that old trucker.

    A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free people.
