An earlier report said non-sick agents are easing off on strictness to speed up the flow.
My thought about that is this:
These are nervous times, even scary, even [for some] terrorizing times.
Because of government actions - no fault laid or needed - many are worried about an increased possibility of terrorizing things happening at or via airports. [Few, if any, at foot and car borders, per stats from that same government.]
Terror increases because of [in]actions by Homeland Security - no fault laid or needed - whose task is preventing terrorism.
You know, that looks really really stupid, as I reread it. I must be misinterpreting cause and effect or something. Could government actions, for the benefit of its citizens, result in something really really stupid?
