Tom Ridge hired by Albania
It's a match made in heaven as former DHS Secretary Tom Ridge has been hired by the country of Albania. No, this is not a joke.
He's been hired as a consultant to Sali Berisha, their Prime Minister. He will be advising them on "security, NATO and investments". Albania wants to become a member of NATO.
Now, here's the part where I offer a joke comment that we all wish were true:
=== Joke section begins ===
In other news, Michael Chertoff has agreed to advise Somalia on its return to the world stage. He will, unfortunately, need to renounce his U.S. citizenship to do so. And, president George Bush along with an investor group has agreed to buy the country of Honduras. He will be managing the day-to-day operations of the newly-renamed "Bushlandia" and, like Chertoff, he will need to renounce his current citizenship as well. American citizens breathed a sigh of relief.
