Homeland Security High

A Maryland highschool is now offering a specialized vocational program in homeland security and defense – all supported and endorsed by the “defense” industry of course.

I always figured the “duct tape your windows in case of chemical attack” strategy reflected the careful and nuanced thinking of a high-schooler.

Excerpt: Students will choose one of three specialized tracks: information and communication technology, criminal justice and law enforcement, or “homeland security science.” David Volrath, executive director of secondary education for Harford County Public Schools, says the school also hopes to offer “Arabic or some other nontraditional, Third World-type language.”

    I wonder if they’ll include Chinese in their list of non-traditional languages!

    Well I support this strongly… DHS is clearly being run by JK/SKers… this will result in a clear improvement in security management and capability. Kudos to Maryland… this is also the most exciting thing to happen there since they burned down ALL the Catholic churches.
