See, This Is What I'm Talking About.

The ACLU is going after New York City over its new subway bag-searching policy.

I've said a couple of times now that this was going to happen and that given a) the resources that will have to be wasted to fight this kind of legal challenge and b) the dubious efficacy of the searches to begin with, the whole thing was probably a bad idea.

But does anybody listen to me? Nooooooooooo.

(SOOPER SEKRET MESSAGE TO THE LB BUDDY: I know what you're going to say, but I'm not arguing about the constitutionality of the searches one way or the other. I'm simply coming at this from an allocation of scarce resourses standpoint.)

I'd like to see more balls on our politicians. Start anti-profiling: Don't target who to search, but identify those who it is a waste to search: old ladies with walkers, kids under 12, computer geeks.
