WOULD YOU LIKE POPCORN WITH YOUR NATIONAL SECURITY?

In his State of the Union address, President Bush said, "Taxpayer dollars must be spent wisely, or not at all." But while the White House has consistently underfunded vital national security requirements ? like funds for port security and money for firefighters and cops ? it turns out there’s plenty of money for Tinseltown. USA Today reports the Department of Homeland Security recently hired Bobbie Faye Ferguson, a former actress whose claim to fame is guest roles on Dukes of Hazzard and Designing Women, to advise Hollywood on ways to portray U.S. security in a happy, positive light. Ferguson, who pulls in a six-figure salary, has already given her services to the Tom Hanks flop "The Terminal" as well as the CBS shows CSI: Miami and NCIS. Who needs actual security when you can just watch it on the big screen?
