Profiles in ideology
Re: the Commentary piece by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. in the Nov. 29 edition titled “Pat me down, please” (page 36), I’ve just read something Mr. Tyrrell wrote that I disagree with. He says that under the current TSA outrages we are living “like the Israelis.” The whole point is that we are not. The Israelis profile. We do not because we live under an administration that values political correctness over the safety of Americans.
Thomas Sowell in his column on page 34 titled “How about airport security that works?” gets it right (as usual). He talks about “the utter contempt that this administration has for the American people.” That sums it up perfectly. That establishes the prism through which every word and deed of this administration should be viewed. Edward C. Mengel Malvern, Pennsylvania
