...where all the po-lice at?
now i feel more secure. in response to the second round of london bombings, the nypd will start searching through people's bags...totally at random. the funny bit about that is this will breed all sorts of passive aggressive resentment among the law abiding populace when the cops search through the messenger bag of the 6 tall blond haired blue eyed catholic priest in full vestments (complete with a pointy hat and miter) on their way to st. pats, not that priests carry messenger bags (or do they) to keep the politcally correct satiated. i had read in a column after the the mass murders that happened on september 11th that opined that it was a good thing that we keep a look out for and search blonde haired blue eyed swedes on airplane flights because those blonde haired blue eyed swedes may just be ready to take the plane and crash it into a building. let's not go to our occam's razor choice on this one. you know, the 5 guys talking to each other in arabic, playing musical chairs in first class. that would be racial profiling. some crazy actor guy named james woods saw this go down on his flight from ny to la one august day in 2001. he calle dthe FBI. what a racist.
anyway, the police say that they are going to search bags. i waltz into the subway station ready to get the treatment and lo and behold. no cops. once again new york city's red headed step child that is the borough of queens is cop free. search free. with a couple of radical mosques in jackson heights and richmond hill and a man was arrested a few months back for the arms cache he had. oddly enough, he wasn't swedish. however, the nypd will be covering brooklyn and the bronx more heavily which makes sense and doesn't. at the end of the day some trust fund baby in a trucker hat and john deere sweat bands will get the body cavity search while the guy with the CAIR membership card will breeze by after phoning it in to the ACLU. ida know, ending rant now. reporting from the staging area.
