David Frum opens up a can of worms and spills it all over himself:
True story: I arrive at a Washington DC office building this morning. The guard asks me to show ID so he can sign me in. I produce a drivers license. He says: "Sorry I cant read small type would you mind spelling out your name for me?" I reply, "Sure. A-b-r-a-h-a-m, L-i-n ..." Okay, that last part I made up. But is anybody else getting the impression that some of these so-called office security policies are kind of beside the point?
Never mind office security policies -- have you looked at so-called national security policies lately?
