Of course, then Kevin points out this article from a reporter for the Sacramento News & Review, the local free weekly paper. All of this terrifies me to my core. As a coworker remarked, "We're headed right back to the days of McCarthyism." As someone who doesn't neatly fit into the norm, I'm really worried about how this will affect me. Will I be questioned because my hair is an unnatural color? Will I be stopped because the book I clutch might be considered threatening? Will I be stopped for looking too thoughtful about all of this? Meanwhile, anyone who really could do us harm is probably perfectly practiced at looking perfectly normal and unthreatening. Oh it all just makes me ill. I'm just glad I have no reason to fly in the near future.
