How to lose Homeland Security funding: live in a place that's actually been attacked by terrorists. How to gain Homeland Security funding: live in a state governed by the president's brother.


UPDATE: I'm just speechless at this part of the Bushies' explanation for the New York funding cut:

New York officials were given a one-page tally that explained, in part, how the region's risk-based standing was calculated. The document said the region had no "national monuments or icons" ...

"It's outrageous that these bean counters don't think the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge are national monuments or icons," said Jordon Barowitz, a spokesman for Mayor Bloomberg.

Er, Times Square? Apparently not iconic?
