Kayakers Aid Terrorists

I didn't come up with the title but friend of the site, Michael Pardy suggested it to me. In the USA Today article that was posted earlier today, there is a funny quote buried in the middle:

In the Coast Guard, the number of kayak rescues - many of which involve multiple boats and helicopters - is escalating. "It does take us away from other high-priority missions, like maritime security," says spokesman Brendan McPherson. The Coast Guard is tasked with protecting the nation's ports and harbors against terrorists.

Remember, next time that you get in trouble and you think to call the US Coast Guard for help, you are helping terrorists get in the door while they are looking for you.
