Bits of homeland stupidity

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, mainly because of the blasted weather. So, here’s another short collection of bits of government gone awry.

  • Wal-Mart called the police, who called the Secret Service on a high school student doing a class project on the Bill of Rights. The problem? He took an unflattering photo of George W. Bush.
  • FEMA, after telling the Phoenix Fire Department’s urban search and rescue team to bring U.S. marshals with them into New Orleans, threw them out after they did just that.
  • A man was indicted in San Francisco for writing key logger software. The indictment potentially threatens all software writers.

Are we having fun yet?
