Outrageous. And Stupid 1

What happened to Phillybits today.

The cops would not let him take pictures of Philadelphia from the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Like plenty of pictures of the Ben Franklin and Philadelphia aren’t floating around out there already.

This is not increased security.

This is just dumbness.

But, you know, it is where Bushie induced paranoia (as opposed to real actual security) has taken us.

On a personal note, I’ve considered downloading a copy of the Koran, sort of on the theory that knowing something about it might actually help me understand what the hell is going on in our world–and I’ve been deterred because I might be labelled a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer for doing so.

And I would not dare stop to take a picture of the flight line at Dover AFB, because the flight line is just plain impressive (though, frankly, a C-5 is kind of difficult to hide), for fear of being rousted.

Welcome to 1984–twenty years late.
