American exceptionalism at work! We are exceptional at creating fear and acting on said fear. And we can’t even blame the lawyers! They’re certainly not responsible for hospitals refusing to name New Years babies for fear of kidnapping.

Dave Schuler argues that we have no existential threats to the US… except ourselves.

The egalitarian in me agrees with this Kriston Capps article: Airline pre-check status is bull&@#$.

    Our grocery store when I was growing up had one, and sometimes my mom would give me the quarter (or dime, or nickle, whatever it was) and I would ride it. It probably wasn’t really that cool.
