Thank goodness we're guarding Sheila Dixon

February 17, 2010

I hope police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld's quote about the security detail for former Mayor Sheila Dixon ("It's a balance. We've altered the way the deployment is conducted, and it's different from what it was. As we progress along, it'll change according to those assessments. It's a matter of transitioning from what she had to eventually getting and having no security there at all") was taken out of context, for it not it reads like Klingon babble ("Dixon security detail being scaled back," Feb. 17). But one thing is for sure. I will rest better knowing that our tax dollars are being spent to provide the security detail that will prevent Ms. Dixon from being kidnapped by terrorists and coughing up secrets of state.
