Almost seven years after 9/11.

After maybe a billion-dollars spent on "Homeland Security," and half-a-trillion-dollars on the so-called GWOT--Global War on Terror, airport security remains an affront. Surly, un-trained, low-wage workers, never making eye-contact (the most effective form of surveillance--ask any Israeli.) Almost seven-years-later we still have temporary tables. Filth. We still scan three-year-olds. Confiscate bottled water. And make people take off their shoes
