Paranoia Runs Deep

Rant-(website)Sometimes I feel like I’m shouting into the wind. Almost every day I read of yet another unspeakable incident that provokes my simmering outrage. And I guess that I hope that by speaking out, my small voice will be like a snowball that builds support bit-by-bit, eventually growing into something substantial that will make a difference. Well, that’s my dream, anyway.

The event that has me riled up this time was not an action by police, but instead occurred at that most mundane of places… the airport, where a handicapped teenage girl was unjustifiably roughed up and injured by TSA agents. Since more of us will find ourselves at the airport than at the sight of a police action, I think it behooves us all to sit up and take notice of this particular event.

About wordswithbrad

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
