Cincinnati Mayor Unhappy With Ridge Visit

Gets all snarky:

Mayor Charlie Luken had hoped for something more from Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge's visit to Cincinnati Wednesday.

"We asked for help in fighting terrorism, and we got a new Web site and some more duct tape," Luken said.

Ridge urged families to create kits to prepare for potential terror attacks as part of the "Ready Campaign," which he announced during his speech at the American Red Cross's downtown office.

I bet Ridge is going to want his duct tape back.
