    My niece returned from her semester abroad today.  I picked her up at the airport.  Her wait in customs was nearly two hours.  She said there were four customs agents available -- for 15 flights.  This isn't cancer treatment or head start, but it is, still, utterly unnecessary and ridiculous.  And what of those customs agents stuck at home on furloughs?  And the families who depend on their paychecks?

    Shame.
