"I don't know of any airport in the country, or any other police department, that has a facility like this It's a win for everybody, and it will be used by the finest police force in the country." - Rep. Ted Poe (R-Houston)I love Houston just as much as the next guy - hell, I've lived here all my life (except for those formative years on the Forty Acres) - but, let's face it, people come to Houston for business and to visit friends and family. People don't come to Houston to see the sights. So why on earth would a group of terrorists choose to hang out with the heat, humidity and mosquitoes just to blow something up -- wouldn't that make it even hotter?

Should I feel safer?
Ran across this story in the Houston Chronicle this morning that the Houston Police Department has acquired an old Air Force 737 to use for anti-terrorism training. Have I missed something here? The next time some group lets loose with a terrorist attack in the Bayou City will be the first time.
