Editorial Note

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Philip J. Palin on March 9, 2009

Today HLSwatch welcomes Chris Bellavita as a contributor.  Chris is widely recognized as a provocative scholar of Homeland Security and one of the founders of Homeland Security as a serious academic endeavor.  Among his many roles, Dr. Bellavita is Director of  Academic Programs at the Center for Homeland Defense and Security at the Naval Postgraduate School.

I very much hope that Chris and future contributors will evoke your comments.  But for reasons beyond my control – or evidently influence – the comment function is not operating this morning.  The host of HLSwatch experienced serious technical problems late last week.  I suspect this is a continuing legacy of our own cyber vulnerability.

Please pound out your thoughts in another format and stand-by for the comment function to be fixed.

If it just wasn’t located in such a beautiful geographic area perhaps even more would get done. How about moving it to the Great Lakes Naval Station? Plenty of time for thinking when upper-mid-western winters underway! Just being facetious. Jealousy for those who are there and those who are not there or where I live in beautiful tidewater VA.

Thanks for the comment outage. Made life simplified.
