An hour or so ago, I made it through security at the Atlanta airport. I have seen some epic security clearance areas, but nothing ever quite like this. We were herded, prodded, chided, admonished, routed through serpentine back n’ forth ways, checked and rechecked. Everyone was extraordinarily cooperative — it was like we were so many thousands of moo cows at the Omaha stock yards. We’ve been ‘buked and we’ve been scorned, and we’ve been willing to put it with it.
And why? Well, everyone knows that. It’s so we can keep our freedoms!
