I don’t want to take my shoes off.

I’ve thought about all the different things that I’d like to see from an Obama Administration, and I think that’s the one I’d like to see first. This fixation on (false) security at airports is one of the most visible changes we’ve seen with the bush administration. I’d like to not have to take my shoes off anymore: I think that would be a tangible sign of “going back to normal.” I’d want the rest of course, repealing the patriot act, an end to warrant-less wiretapping, getting out of Iraq and eventually Afghanistan, but initially, just initially, lets stop with the politics of fear, and let old ladies keep their dignity at the airport.
