Acronym Change

From here on out, I will refer to the Department of Homeland Security by the initials DBP.

In Russian, the name would probably be Департамент Безопасности Родины, or DBP. And since those folks have proven themselves to be about as efficient, as law-abiding, as respectful of human rights and and as people-friendly as a Soviet-era bureaucracy, that is how I will refer to them.

(Yes, I know that отдел is the most common word for ""department," but that seems to apply more to department stores, entities which DBP is nowhere near close to being as competent as, I'm sticking with DBP.)
