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?

Boasun,

Following your logic Annapolis sailors and those who visit Annapolis may want to have a TWIC. Afterall, the Naval Academy is right there on the harbor and frequently Naval vessels are anchored just south of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to attend academy functions.

There everywhere, there everywhere. OMG, Great Lakes Naval Training Center...there goes Lake Micigan too.

It was discussed but lacking a SSN they got a waiver. Besides, it was decided that as Mules they were akin to Donkey's and that practically makes them Democrats so they were deemed... AOK!
