If the story by Nicholas and Mary Monahan about their recent run-in with airport security turns out to be factual then it’s certainly a sad day for freedom in the USA.
To say I find it frightening to read is an understatement and it makes me glad I no longer fly around the country as part of my job. Given the way I look I’m sure I’d attract more than my fair share of attention especially when I’ve shaved my head, as I have done recently so I can once again wear hats in the cold weather without worrying about hat hair. I mean, take a good look at my employee ID picture in the upper right there. Would you let someone looking like that onto your airplane? Anyway I’m holding out hope that the damage being wrought by The Shrub(TM) and his cronies may be undone some day, but it is depressing to think about. I’m going to have to go back to reading about the Matrix sequels to get myself back into a good mood.
