A Ridge Too Far
The man who brought you color-coded alerts, got you to buy rolls of duct tape, played on your darkest fears, and spoke in a voice not unlike that of an impatient kindergarten teacher is out.
Ridge, 59, told colleagues he was tired and needed to earn more money to pay for his two children's college educations, the Associated Press reported July 30. His salary is $175,000.Guy is 59 years old and he hasn't started a college fund yet? Great, really glad he was in charge of my homeland's security.
