How out of hand is the TWIC? Mytown is home to the National Canal Museum and part of the attraction is a mule drawn canal barge. A two mile ride on an inland waterway that passes no military bases, ports or power plants. Nothing of national security interest unless you count the fish-ladder and damn. The five seasonal employees hired as mule-skinners all have to have a TWIC. Our congressman, who serves on the national security committee requested an exception and it was denied.

How are we safer because mule-skinners have a TWIC?
