OK, to be fair (and somewhat balanced), for all the foolishness about overzealous TSA agents, silly bans on mall walkers and warnings to watch out for anyone carrying a book, I’m glad New Year’s Eve security is especially tight. The idealistic side of me bemoans the fact that we seem to be turning into Fortress America and feels like we’ve given a big ole “Mission Accomplished” to terrorists by being terrorized. The realistic side of me knows that there are idiots out there that want to hurt people, because their twised minds think it will further their cause. So, I’m glad we’ve got extra cops and troops watching out for us.
I hope that they don’t forget that not all terrorists are foreign. Some of them are from Texas*.
I hope you all have a faboo evening how ever you choose to ring in the new year. Don’t drink too much (or at least stay off the road). And have a Happy New Year!
