Orange Alert

So I’m in the Cleveland airport with time on my hands….

I’ve been informed every 15 minutes for the last two hours that good ole Homeland Security has increased the security level to orange. Yes, orange is where it’s at. No reason as to why. Why bother with details? Trivialities. They seem essential to me.

It strikes me that we travellers aren’t that far off from the poor dogs in the cages which would get occasional electric shocks, without any way to control them. Perhaps that’s a tad severe of a comparison. Inevitably though, both situations are meant to cause anxiety and helplessness. It all reminds me of the great summary of what is wrong with American government by the British minister in Moore’s “Sicko”.
