I heard a piece on the news yesterday that left me scratching my head. To try to improve border security there has been legislation passed, or some standard updated, that would help identify false ID's and flag persons trying to cross the border who are on a watch list. Uniformity in what constitutes acceptable ID is the goal, making it easier to spot the fakes and prevent entry. Get this. These changes have not been implemented because it would create a hardship on citizens of other countries to conform to our standards and expectations, and this might impact tourism. Okay, let me see if I have this right. We're not enforcing regulations relating to ID's because it might effect our economy, but we're willing to infringe on the rights of our citizens in order to protect us from terrorists? Does anyone else see the disconnect here?
In other news on a smaller scale home-front, attendant attire took another hit yesterday when I learned that the dress we finally found that was to our liking is no longer available. Back to the drawing board!
So, dear, how was your day?
