Here’s Patrick Smith’s latest. It covers the recent TSA Code Bravo, freeze! bravado that turns adults into kindergarteners and tattle-tales. How marvelous that they all follow the pied pipers of doom–well, almost all.
… TSA doesn’t really have the authority to make anybody remain motionless. TSA guards do not have law enforcement power — much as the agency has done a good job at fooling people into believing otherwise. Screeners are now called “officers” and they wear blue shirts with badges. Not by accident, the badges look exactly like the kind worn by police. —Patrick Smith, salon.com
The theater of the absurd continues unabated.
