Fox News TV is reporting that the United States Secret Service has cancelled the Tea Party event scheduled for noon at the U.S. Treasury Department and directed event organizers to Lafayette Square where another Tea Party is being held. The Secret Service are a disciplined group of dedicated law enforcement officials who have an extremely difficult job, so we take them at their word that this was a necessary directive. However, they should release their reasoning this morning, so there leaves no doubt. As for people heading down to the event: walk an extra 100 yards and you’ll be in Lafayette Square.
