Ride That Ferry!

CNN has offered us a little news analysis or something about the effects of 9/11 on the border.  Included in its report is a section on Point Roberts.

Apparently, someone actually came up here and actually looked around and actually talked to some people, including people who had not lived here prior to 9/11, to find out what the effects of 9/11 were.  And then its intrepid reporter (after experiencing lack of sufficient respect by the CBP) points out that one of the essentially worrisome problems of Point Roberts is that a terrorist could come here and then take a ferry to the mainland.

Is it that there is a ferry to the mainland from Point Roberts and Homeland Security has kept it secret from us P.R. residents?  Or is it that CNN does not know what it is talking about?

CNN reports; you be the judge.

I think Mike Milne, the spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection who is based in Seattle and who made the comment about the ferry has no clue about Point Roberts. That seems to happens alot when the bureaucracy that controls the border is not near the border and does not have to live with it on a daily basis. CNN should have called him on the inaccuracy of his statement.

Imaginary terrorists and imaginary ferries might well make for a good match! I'm sure there is money to be made here, somehow.
