This is going way too far, and it's not an isolated incident.
Working on a campus that is still recovering from the acts of a nut, I think I have a pretty realistic view of the need for security and the risks when someone is determined to circumvent the best-laid plans.
And I can say with all sincerity, we can't keep being America if this intolerable crap continues. These attempts to make us safer are only making us captives. It's wrong-headed and dangerous.
I have no idea how to stop it. It's not a conservative or liberal issue. Every side of the political debate should be passionate about maintaining our freedom, and instead they all seem determined to undermine it.
