Ridge resigned today but will actually be off duty on Feb.1st. Did he do a good job?
Obviously he has. We have not been attacked in three years.
I live in the UK so am isolated from US stuff. What do you mean by "Ridge" and "he"?
Ridge=last name=head of homeland security. does anyone know exaclty why he resigned?
I would die without my life.

The American secretary in homeland security, Tom Ridge, announced Tuesday his resignation after having spent three years to coordinate the American fight against terrorism.
"I addressed a letter of resignation to the president George W Bush", declared Mr. Ridge He specified that it wished to continue to occupy his functions until at February 1, a little after the official beginning of the second mandate of Bush, unless his successor is not confirmed by the Senate more early.
For the public, his action was marked in particular by the introduction of the terrorist code of alarm containing colors, posted in certain public places like the subway, and the reinforcement of controls in the airports.
I think Bush and Ridge only really knows why he resigned. Ask them. :clueless:
Oh ok thakns
Tom Ridge said he was tired or something. He said the position wore him down.
He said he wanted to spend more time with his family, and that it was like Cata said, wearing him out.
Meh, not really. All of the added security seems to try to make people *feel* safe instead of protecting them. Like, I could take a shard of plexiglass or glass or whatever sharpen it then walk right through security with it and shank somebody on my way to hawaii or something (not that I would )

Did he actually do anything? I hardly ever heared his name in the news... all i heared about was Bush, Chenney and uh... Powel. If he did great things wouldn't it be on the internaional news aswell?
