  1. Chung Nguyen Said,

    I heard about this a while back but Colbert did a great job of making this sound like what it is - stupid, stupid people with too much friggin' authority. Authority = weapons and handcuffs


  2. this whole story is crazy. but so is anyone who walks their cat on a leash!


  3. Cheryl Said,

    Forget trying to get the CIA and the FBI to communicate better--how about Amtrack Security and the Amtrack PR/Photo Contest Department?


  4. jterry Said,

    Um, this is a national phenomenon. So many folks got arrested in DC's Union Station that Congress held a hearing. Congress finds such hearings preferable to actually governing the country.


  5. Yup. He should've gotten arrested for that leashed cat.
