Heroes Face Down Fake Ordeals

The ongoing problem with the culture of Homeland Security in the United States is summed up rather well in the headline this morning from the New York Daily News:

Hero cop describes fake bomb ordeal

Unpack that phrase lightly. It might contain something explosive.

My favorite line from the story came from the “hero” who had to grapple with a fake bomb: “Anybody who doesn’t stare me in the face, I get a little nervous with.”

Remember that, the next time you see enter an airport. Find a police officer, then walk up and stare the officer in the face. Otherwise, someone might get nervous.
