Chertoff is Coming to California

Michael Chertoff is on the local news talking about fire shelters down in San Diego and coordinating a federal response to the wildfires. He is apparently on his way out here to help. I’m so relieved.

This demonstrates, I think, why the Department of Homeland Security is so disappointing. What exactly is its mission? Natural disasters, immigration, and terrorism are important national issues; it’s not unreasonable to imagine that when the department turns its attention to one issue, the others are neglected.
