This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Dulles, BWI Consider Security Shift (washingtonpost.com):
"Officials at Dulles International and Baltimore-Washington International airports said they are considering the replacement of federal airport screeners at security checkpoints with workers employed by private contractors."

Anyone remember why we went away from private screeners? Here's a hint.

Whoooosh... BOOOM, Crash, boom... (screams of people plunging to their deaths)

And why would we do this, despite all the bold affirmation that "WE WILL NEVER FORGET"?

"The issue of the long lines -- that's probably where we're most concerned about customer service issues,"

Funny thing about hollow words. They don't mean shit when they mean personal inconvenience or a pinch in the pocket book. Its why we love bumper stickers. We can scrape them off later.

Like many major airports, BWI said it wants to learn more about liability in the event of another terrorist attack.

Translation: We'd be willing to put people in danger again, if it will save a few bucks and the government will cover our asses.

The TSA suggested in its announcement this week that airports would be protected by federal laws that limit tort liability in case of terrorist attack, but it did not specify the exact terms.

Government: We got your back.

Sure, there are talks about making sure the screeners are "approved" and how the private screeners will have to have pay comparable to federal screeners. But we know what this is all about. I don't really HAVE TO explain it do I?

Cheap labor. Busted unions and going back to the way we were WHEN IT DIDN'T WORK.

And this is why I never believe the people who spend so much time talking about how much they CARE or SUPPORT, because in the end its about ACTIONS people. Bumper stickers and little flags don't mean a lick if you're not willing to stick to your guns and do the right then when it means being a little inconvenienced.

Pick your cliche:

1) 9-11 changed everything!
2) The more things change the more they stay the same.

I pick #2.
