When I was a kid in the 1940s my family lived in Los Alamos, New Mexico where the atomic bomb was developed and built. It was a closed town. There were guard gates at every road in and out of Los Alamos. To get in or out you had to have a badge. Even I, at the age of nine had a badge. I still remember my number which was Z14503. My father’s badge was Z5. As a joke some of the gate guards changed the picture of one of the town’s leaders from his face to the face of a monkey. For over two months he went through the gates without it being noticed. When finally discovered, all hell broke loose and a lot of people got fired.
The next time you go through McCarran and hand the TSA guard your boarding pass and driver’s license, look carefully to see if the guard actually compares your face to the face on your driver’s license. I may be wrong, but when I watch the eyes of many of the guards looking at my face and then at my driver’s license, I have no belief the guard matched the two. It doesn’t concern me, but it does raise a question in my mind of why the hell are we spending all of this money on TSA and what are we really getting for it?
