DHS: Never Mind The Terrorists – Beware Of Wet Mittens!

Our vaunted Department of Homeland Security, mocked for once having had color-coded terrorist alert levels, is now issuing warnings to stretch before you shovel snow and “change wet clothing frequently.”

I thought DHS was a bad idea to begin with when it was first proposed (Homeland Security — gee, isn’t that the job of the Department of Defense?), but now it has devolved to this level of lunacy.

This isn’t the first time that DHS has delved into the realm of the trivial, but it is now abundantly clear that this is a needless cabinet department that merely duplicates the mission of the more capable Defense Dept.  The next Republican president should abolish it.
