Have the bad guys won? It sure looks that way.
What’s more important to you — the journey or the destination?
But look closely. They’re nowhere near an airport. In fact, if you’ve ever been to Washington, then you’ll recognize the area just outside a Metro station near a congressional office building.
This is just one the images the TSA didn’t want you to see last week.
Presidential candidates don’t care about you? Vote anyway
To say that the major presidential candidates are indifferent to the needs of travelers may be something of an understatement. No matter what your political views may be, it should be clear to you by now that Barack Obama and John McCain take the jet set for granted.
So what? Vote tomorrow, anyway.
Both Democrats and Republicans have given short shrift to the issues we travelers care about: fixing airline delays, affordable gas prices, easing traffic congestion, simplifying confusing travel requirements, propping up the dollar and funding mass transit.
My recommendation? Vote for the man you dislike the least, or don’t vote for president at all.
Instead, pull the lever for a local candidate. Because who goes to Congress may be more important than who ends up in the White House.
Good luck, everybody. Here’s hoping your candidate wins tomorrow.
