Dumping Terrorists in the Midwest

Michigan's UP or Kansas? How'd you like to be on the jury in a small town, or around if and when these guys escape (or are let go)?:
Rep. Peter Hoekstra, R-Mich, the senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to oppose any attempt to bring Guantanamo prisoners to Michigan.
"They are some of the most dangerous people in the world who pose a major threat to U.S. national security," Hoekstra said in a statement issued Monday. "We need to preserve jobs in Michigan, but turning our state into a terrorist penal colony is not how to attract new families and business investment."
Leave them in Gitmo--why spend millions to ensure sleepless nights in our communities?

  1. Actually, that prison isn't in the UP, it's in lower Michigan. The UP (or "Da UP" as it's called up der) has one in Baraga... I used to fish up there, it's a nice place, though the last time I was up there, somebody actually broke out and was on the run for 3 days until they got caught in northern WI. So maybe it's good that's not where they're thinking of sending them...!
