ICE ICE Baby

Reader Rob McMillin points us to this ESPN.com account of how "Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the largest investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security" made last night's Major League Baseball All-Star Game a whole lot safer by busting unlicensed vendors outside Detroit's Comerica Park:

"A lot of people ask 'What the heck are you guys in Homeland Security doing with counterfeiters?'" said Brian Moskowitz, special agent in charge of ICE in Michigan and Ohio. "First and foremost, we're looking for vulnerabilities in our trade system; vulnerabilities that criminals — and by proxy, terrorists — could exploit."

Thanks, guys, for protecting us from exploding bobbleheads and cheap caps. Whole thing here.
