Ever since 9-11, flying has been a little more scary. And a lot more of a hassle.  But it’s worth the peace of mind that you’re not going to be a victim of terrorism while flying, right?

But next time you are at the airport, notice how many security people are on their phones.  I just arrived in Chile for my annual choral workshop, and in every airport, people were on their phones when they should have been watching.

Similarly, notice how many police officers who are standing guard somewhere are actually on their cell phones.
