Fallows on Homeland Insecurity

It turns out that, in addition to a shared aversion to boiled frog stories, Jim and I are both unhappy with the the term "Homeland Security," which for Jim has the ring of a "Teutonic-in-the-bad-sense" Orwellianism. For me, the term has more of the Russian in it than the German, but I see his point. In any case, I attach myself to Jim's strongly-held feeling that the department should change its name. That, or make it's official anthem "The Song of the Volga Boatmen."
