So Vice President Joseph R. Biden is landlord to the Secret Service (“Biden collects rent from Secret Service,” Page 1, Monday). How badly does he need the extra bucks? Does he not make enough in his current job?

If the Secret Service had to have a security guard house located at the gate of his estate, would he charge them rent, too? It may not be illegal, but it sure as heck is greedy and immoral to charge those who are protecting you for the roof over their heads.

What makes it worse is that Mr. Biden is charging the taxpayers rent to protect him. I always guessed that his boldness would catch up with him and now it has. Has he no shame?
