Security beefed up for hockey game

Unlike past Games, here in Vancouver reporters and photographers do not have to pass through screening every time we enter and exit a venue. Instead, your credential is scanned and the computer randomly selects people for screening.

The exception was Opening Ceremonies, which had very tight security, much like an airport's -- no beverages, for instance.

And now, the men's gold medal hockey game. Barry Svrluga and I arrived about two and a half hours earlier and had a good 20- to 25-minute wait. I just got a message from a friend who arrived later -- she's been in line since 10:20 a.m. and there are about 300 people in line for one screening machiine.

One man with flowing white hair sailed past all of us and went to the head of the line. I recently re-watched "Ordinary People" on cable and Donald Sutherland can get cuts any time.
