The problem isn't Kip Hawley as much as it is Janet Napolitano. She is ineffective as as the head of the DHS. She is reactionary and not a visionary nor a leader. She was horrible as a governor, she is horrible as the head of the DHS. She needs to go somewhere and put her education to use instead of riding on the coattails of others who are also no good at their job.

Exactly. Those who say the US can use mass transit have never been here.

San Francisco is not like Denton, is not like New York City, is not like Kansas City, is not like Conshohoken, is not like Phoenix, is not like Columbus, etc.....

You also can't use mass transit in farming communities.

If you already have AT&T service, like Go-Phone, you can easily switch the cards out and have a pay as you go plan with the iPhone.

I had full service with Cingular, AT&T bought them, Switched to a pay-as-you-go and ended up paying only $25 a quarter for about 3 years.

Got a Motorola Karma for a year - just by switching out the card. Brother in law gave me his old iPhone and did the same.

Ended up going on the road more so I paid into a service plan.
