Signs of the times


Tha Bay Area's BART mass transit train system is asking passengers to be on alert for bombs, borrowing posters created for London. A bomb exploded in a train running in a tube under the Bay could be horrific, and cripple BART for an extended period of time.

No one could ever believe that the politically correct denizens of San Francisco, Berkeley, or Oakland would ethically profile when inquisitively checking out their fellow passengers. I am certain that young males of Middle Eastern and South Asian origins will feel no particular extra scrutiny. Otherwise, they would all be hypocrites.
