Here's to you, Mr. Robinson

Former Justice Department prosecutor Jim Robinson has found himself in a predicament... he is on the Terror Watch List. Robinson believes his listing is due to someone with an identical name also being on the list. The list is currently hundreds of thousands of names long... which presents an interesting, albeit humorous aside...

"The government calls its watch list one of the most effective tools in its fight against terrorism. It was created after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks to consolidate 12 existing lists and make sure no terrorists slipped through the cracks — whether when entering the country or if otherwise stopped for questioning. Last year, congressional investigators found 'general agreement that the watch list has helped to combat terrorism.'"

I figure that if everyone is on the list... then the terrorists will be on the list... therefore, the list works wonders.

Methinks it's time to consult Saint Nicholas in the most effective way to make a list...
