Perhaps I do see the relevance of the original post.
Each time I sail I run a gauntlet of those sworn to "protect and serve". Boarding to check my poo-poo pump out valve is locked. Boardings by Fish
& Wildlife, local Sheriffs patrols, Local police, Homeland Security
, Coast Guard - all wanting to know where I'm going, what I'm doing and check my "papers" ala 1939 Germany
. All this in the "land of the free"......
Perhaps the relevance lies in the knee jerk reaction of governments to every incident by some miscreant mutt. More laws - more regulations
- more surveillance - less personal dignity and freedom.
Hey Boatman61. Get ready to show your tired old bod to the X-ray machines and maybe get a good grope (sorry - no drink first or even a kiss) when you head
back home. Remember what your Mum told you about always wearing clean underwear!!
