Oh! I forgot to tell you!

At Dulles International Airport they now have two security lines.

One, the one we were in, is for everybody. The other (which was empty) is for First. Class. Passengers (AKA Premium Passengers).

I AM NOT KIDDING.

You can now pay your way into a shorter security line.

Our tax dollars at work.

Yup, they've had that set-up for a little while now. The argument I've heard is that, if you don't give the first-class people their short security line, they won't bother to purchase the higher-priced tickets and it will irreparably hurt the airlines. *rolls eyes*

The government has no business differentiating between those who've bought first class tickets and the rest of us poor schmoes.

It's been that way here in Home of the Blues for a while. Nothing says "privilege" like an upgrade coupon.
