Oh, damn everything. Bad enough to see signs yesterday
that these liquid-and-gel bans on airplanes might be permanent, but today a New York appeals court ruled that random bag searches of New York subway riders are legal and constitutional. I talked about it over at Jim Henley’s blog

I miss the halcyon days of my childhood. Ah, to be in seventh grade again and hear my civics teacher describe the best thing about living in America: unlike the oppressive governments of other countries, in America, unless the government has a damned good reason to suspect you’re up to something it has to leave you alone. And “he’s got water on the plane” or “she’s carrying a purse to work” were not good reasons.
