Cast as a walk-on in 'security theater'

By Neil Spiller, Silver Spring

Metro is disingenuous to suggest that the fact that “no customers to date have refused to have their bag searched,” as Capt. Kevin Gaddis of the Transit Police put it, should be construed as “supportive” public opinion [“Metro bag searches criticized by public,” Metro, Jan. 4]. Get real! Just because we have to abide by this doesn’t mean we all merrily support either the “guilty until proven innocent” doctrine or the actual train-missing delay. Don’t patronize me, Metro. I yield to your “security theater” because I want to get to work, period.

" Congress Gone Wild "

They speak of Unity yet Division and
Divide seems the only Actions that's
on their minds, Disagreement and
Ridicule is the main words that exit
their mouths how many people know
what I'm talking about?

Congress, it's time you put in check the
Rude Undeserved Disrespect some of you
show to our President! He's truly a worthy
leader, plus his likability by the World is high
on the meter!

Society as a whole is advised by those in power
to get along, yet although they make some of the
most important decisions for our lives,they simply
won't heed to any advice, even when they know
without a doubt, the other side is right!

How can Society ever get ahead with such a group
of knuckleheads? It's pass time grown women and
men stop the Bickering and unnecessary Partisanship
and Disagreeing simply out of pure Meanness

What a poor example you are setting for our
youth, most are not blind or deaf they pay attention
to the things you say and do

which like them you leave us all disappointed and
confused and asking the question what's the use?
the mere thought that our future is in your hands
is really hard to comprehend

So for the sake of Humanity, please remember, once
you're grown you shouldn't act like a child or a bunch
of Clowns!

Because "We The People" could truly do without a
" Congress Gone Wild"

The policy-makers at metro are hopelessly out of touch with the reality of commuting and it shows, repeatedly.
