Boy, I feel safer now...

Apparently in addition to propositioning 14 year-olds for sex, folks at DHS have been busy keeping us safe by:

Case #1) A marine reservists rotating back from Iraq with twenty six other marine's was on the do-not-fly list and it took them an hour to get things sorted out and send him on his way (the article)

Case #2) ATF agents managed to capture a ninja at the University of Georgia. Yes, I said ninja. Let that sink in for a second. Granted it was a sophomore going to a costume party, but still, it's good to know that a person dressed up as a NINJA will be stopped for looking "suspicious". Suddenly I'm thinking the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are in for a rough time this year (Boing Boing's coverage and the article).
