Notes from the Electronic Cottage 11/5/09

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

Another rebroadcast from the first ten years of the Electronic Cottage.

If you fly from time to time, you are by now familiar with the security drill – take of your coat, take off your shoes, everything metal out of your pockets, and so forth. Some of these particular procedures are new but they are a continuation of additional screening initiatives that began in the wake of 9-11. This “sky is falling” rhetoric and new regulations and erosion of traditional privacy rights began very soon after September 2001 as this rebroadcast from February of 2002 indicates, and they’re still with us today.
