It started just a couple of days ago when I was going through the Los Angeles Union Station hallway and down the stairs that I saw cameras everywhere.
Tables set up and police presence seen. Official-looking people as well as press (TV news logos everywhere) were there too.
I wondered if there was a bomb scare. No event.
Maybe they were preparing for a media event, that’s all, I thought.
Then yesterday, more TV news crews could be seen.
And now, I know something’s up.
They’re trying out body scanners that can alert the police if someone is planning a mass-scale attack.
Has there been a tip of such?
It scares me to think of that. Even though I got my earbuds on, I could feel in the air that something is up.
At least I don’t have to stop walking to get scanned.
Or have the TSA swab my palm then next thing I know I’m getting a pat down when I glance on the screen written in big red letters,
What a relief.
Or is it?
