Critical Infrastructure: Par 3

Filed under: Humor,Infrastructure Protection — by Christian Beckner on December 11, 2005

From the SJ Merc:

Mini-golfers, calm down and tee up — Emerald Hills Golfland is off the feds’ terrorist-target list. Or is it?

Some time back, officials added the humble South San Jose theme park — “three acres, two mini golf courses, very challenging,” says Golfland’s VP Bob Kenney — to their National Asset Database. Local officials, figuring plenty of other Silicon Valley sites were richer targets, burst out laughing when they saw it.

“The moment we realized it was on the list, it was taken off,” said San Jose police officer Rubens Dalaison, who handles “critical infrastructure assessment” for the department. “I myself took it off.”

This isn’t really an entirely new revelation; this piece from USA Today a year ago alludes to miniature golf courses being on the list.
