Evidently the Department of Homeland
Stupidity Security thinks that “terrorists” are going to infiltrate your local Bingo hall. Kentucky has been awarded a grant to protect it’s vulnerable citizens from this imminent .
But to some, the idea of protecting bingo halls from terrorists is nonsensical.
“It’s almost ludicrous,” said Rick Bentley, a Henry Clay High School sports booster as he volunteered last Thursday at a noisy, smoke-filled Lexington bingo parlor. “The thought would never even enter my mind.”
As a side note, the article presents an interesting factoid about Bingo:
With more than 1,300 organizations licensed to raise money through gambling, charitable gaming raised $51 million in 2003.
This could be a good way for your local Libertarian organization to raise some money. Given that being a Libertarian probably makes you anby default, you might as well give the DHS something to do with their free time.
