Low Security


At the airport, I was sitting at the gate playing Master of Orion on my laptop, when a woman arrived in a wheelchair and was deposited on the same bench. When the wheelchair operative left, she got up and walked over to a shop across the way, leaving behind her bag.

So, I was sitting next to someone else's unguarded bag. I c9uld have put anything I wanted in it, or removed anything from it I wanted. I could have been blown up by the high explosives it might have contained.

I don't think that "security" means quitge the same thing in the USA as it does in the UK.

The woman ended up sitting next to me on the flight, too. When we got off, her ability to walk suddenly dissipated and she was taken away in a wheelchair.
