me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

Airline security

My Senator, Charles Schumer, has proposed that US carriers refuse to serve airports that don't meet our security standards. That's good -- hit 'em in the pocketbook -- but all our security standards seem to be able to do is make flying a more irritating experience for everyone and keep Joan Rivers in Costa Rica. Meanwhile a guy walks right through a security checkpoint at Newark and disappears and everyone's delayed six hours. Great job, fellas.

So here's my plan. The heads of Homeland Security and the TSA -- when Jim Demint allows us to have a head of the TSA -- and their senior staff are no longer permitted to fly on goverment planes. They have to fly commercial, like the rest of us. Whatever idiotic, reactive, annoying, intrusive security measures they come up with, they have to PUT up with, like the rest of us. If we're delayed, they're delayed. If we have to walk around a dirty floor in our socks, so do they. If we can't get up to pee in the last hour of a flight, they can't either.

Think things will improve if we institute this plan? You betcha.
