Congratulations to our representatives in Washington, who have found another reason to spend time and justify their nice salaries and super benefits by taking at least a month on hearings about the security at our 2002 Winter Olympics.

The House could investigate the security and the Senate could zero-in on former President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney who got us into needing so much security in the first place.

As a volunteer for the games, I am very grateful to all those who kept me and the international officials I was entrusted with safe.

Oh how easy it is to criticize instead of doing something that would benefit most of the people of our great nation.
