Who says American education doesn’t keep up with the times? A community college not too far from here plans to offer an associate’s degree in homeland security.

"Obviously, we think it is necessary not only from an academic perspective but also for the national defense to prepare young people to go into the field of homeland security," said Tyrone Powers, director of the Institute for Criminal Justice, Legal Studies and Public Service at the college. "I mean, it’s a permanent part of our existence and will remain so for many years."

Actually, that’s quite depressing.
