The post also includes a short profile on FBI director James Brien Comey Jr, including sensitive information such as his date of birth, his wife's name, the date they got married, his educational history and even the geographical coordinates of his residence."

    They don't put it on their Facebook accounts, but it's not treated like a matter of national security. They buy and sell their houses, and drive to work in their cars, same as everybody else. They don't expect it to be secret, and it would be practically impossible to keep it secret.

    Most of them don't even have personal security guards. I imagine that most of them have home alarms, but it's likely not all that different from many other people who live in the upper-middle-class neighborhoods of DC.

    As a man of Hispanic genetic heritage, I refuse to even travel through Arizona.

    Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and certainly I propose voting on things with your feet and wallets, but the overall idea that Arizona is racist is a bit much.

    Immigration issues, and border-related crime (and fallout from it) is a serious problem in Arizona. There's no simple solution. Everyone knows -- everyone -- that the people standing outside of the Home Depot on 35th avenue looking for day job are almost entirely illegals. Everyone knows plenty of restaurants where the kitchen staff are undocumented. Nobody even blinks when we report another house filled with immigrants held hostage by an extortionist coyote who promised to bring them to the promised land but kept them by force until their "ransom" was paid. We're used to seeing a house in the suburbs get busted for being a drug warehouse -- in a state where marijuana is already legal for medical use.

    Largely things are great in Phoenix -- and the rest of the state -- but having a difficult problem with our proximity to the border doesn't make us a state full of racists.

    Sure, Secret Service protection is limited by law, but the head of the FBI has his own armed force and a ton of discretion on how to use it.

    The FBI has a laundry list of people with grievances, from wingnut militia groups, criminal gangs like the Aryan Brotherhood, a ton of terrorist groups as well as a lengthy list of foreign intelligence services keen to target the principal domestic counterintelligence organization of the US.

    I'm sure he has personal discretion on how much protection to accept and it may fluctuate with threat levels, but the idea that this guy sits in some ordinary surburban house with no one watching and just his trusty FBI issued pistol just isn't realistic.

    "I'm not a racist but..."

    In my book, referring to illegal migrants as just "illegals" is itself racist. At least dignify them with a noun that gives them some agency or humanity. The term "illegal" is solely about how they're affected by current laws and says nothing inherent to them.

    "Affected by current laws" makes it sound like they had the unfortunate accident of being dropped in this country by mistake rather than choosing, willfully, to be in violation of the law.

    I sympathize with their plight. The other side of the US/Mexico border sucks. If the roles were reversed, I might be here illegally trying to make life better for my family. ...but not choosing a soft, friendly, PC name for people who, by definition, are criminals doesn't make me racist.
