Back In San Jose

I’m back in Silicon Valley, after an uneventful flight up from L.A. But getting to that flight was anything but relaxed–I was really surprised at how lame the T.S.A. folks were at LAX, one of the world’s busiest airports. After moving through a glacier-slow line and then watching the somewhat emaciated looking 70-something Hispanic fellow standing in front of me in full cowboy regalia from head to toe (white ten gallon hat on top; a bitchin’ pair of alligator boots on his feet) get singled out for a spot-check is reminder just how much of Mineta’s Folly is a complete waste of everyone’s time.
