Hearing "DHS" makes this Pennsyltuckian sad.

We had a great, honest, down-to-earth governor named Tom Ridge. He bicycled around the state during his campaign! As governor, he created bike routes across the state, complete with road signs. He was a Republican, but far, far more than that he was a practical, pragmatic man. Vietnam vet. A citizen who wanted to serve his country some more.

Shrub conned him into heading up the DHS after 9/11. Poor, honest, forthright Mr. Ridge fell into the cesspool and never came out. My state lost a true jewel of a man as governor, and I daresay the nation lost one of the few remaining human being politicians.

Tom Ridge for president. Where are you, Tom. You have one vote, unequivocally.
