In Which I Agree and Disagree With Dylan
Without getting personal.
Dylan posts several pictures here about the horrors of increased security at US airports in the wake of the arrest of the plotters in England.
What he misses is that most people see that kind of security as reassuring in the wake of the tragedy that Islamofascists had in mind for next Wednesday. Most people see those National Guardsmen with relief, not dread.
That said, he does make a good point here:
I think even in terms of the "War on Terror", you have to draw the line at a senior citizen with lip balm.
Real terrorist profiling would not concentrate on Grandma Chapstick.
