Through the Barricades


Most post-9/11 security measures that you see are made from concrete. The protective barricades at Reagan Washington National Airport are not completely out of place – nor do I believe they were not intentional.

No, the check-in level of the airport are lined with dozens of ‘deterents’ ….and in truly troubling times, probably are more for decoration than actual enforcement.

Not unlike old Ronnie himself.

Yes, these ones are rigid, cold as steel penises that would gladly tell an air-traffic controller to bend over.

Not unlike old Ronnie himself.

  1. I got strip-searched at that airport! It was mortifying cuz they didn’t take me into a secluded room. It only had 2 walls and people could clearly see me as I was told to take off my clothes. It turned out that my shoes had a metal strip in them that i didn’t know about. It kept setting off the metal detector. And I missed my flight!
