On my way home, I was singled out in the airport at El Al. I watched a young woman take out every single piece of my clothing and shoes and souvenirs and swab them with an explosive detection stick. It took 45 minutes. Mind you, I had carefully packed the wine and honey and other things I brought back from Israel so they wouldn’t break.
I was so irritated that it took so long. I was irritated that I was sent to another special line with another blonde woman (racial profiling?). However, I realized this is the way to make sure we are safe when flying. As long as they don’t waste their time on someone like me and let someone really scary, like Lars breeze right on through. LOL.
Should Rand Paul feel the same? Is it okay to feel a lack of convenience or a“lack of dignity” in the search process in the name of security? What’s the fine line? I don’t have the answer but I think the question is worth investigating.
Good to be back in the states by the way. I did miss America.
