Cordova nuclear power plant, O'Hare international airport, the Willis (Sears) Tower in Chicago, the Rock Island Arsenal. These already ARE targets. If you feel less safe now than before, it's only because you were misguided before. And to the folks who think we'd have more jobs and a better economy with a state prison than a federal one, you're probably right. How has waiting for that worked out so far?
FACT: Gitmo is closing. FACT: they're sending those guys somewhere. FACT: we have an empty prison sitting around useless. FACT: no one has ever escaped from a supermax prison in the US. FACT: Thomson economy needs the money a federal prison would bring. FACT: It's easier to get a weapon onto a plane heading to Cuba than one heading to the US and yet no terrorists have hijacked planes to crash into Gitmo, showing that it's at least unlikely that they're all hell-bent on busting their friends out. FACT: supermax prisons don't allow visitors so worries that their buddies will come to see them are unfounded. And finally, FACT: the people of Thomson want the prison sold to the feds and opened, and shouldn't that carry a little more weight than what people 200 miles away in Chicago want?
