4/14/13: Dept. of Homeland Security’s New $3.9 Billion Headquarters:


Funny reader comment from above article re DHS’ 22-tentacled divisions being under one new roof:

“At least they will all be in one place. They have made themselves a target.”


The title of this post, “A Shrine to Tyranny,” was also from a reader comment. Good one! so I borrowed it.

And how appropriate that the new DHS-HQ is being built on top of the former Federal Insane Asylum, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital (where Ezra Pound spent his years for being a Truth Teller).
