Standing in line at security at the ridiculous DIA set up (one central place of screening before anyone can get on the train) and the nicely easy and efficient SFO (security at every entrance to the many small collection of gates) makes my blood boil.

I curse Dick “Dick” Cheney and with my first Porno Scan, courtesy of SFO, Michael Chertoff as well.
