The world as suspect

Now that the transit cameras in London have captured photos of the people believed to be responsible for the recent bombings, it's only a matter of time before we have cameras lining every street, subway, and park here in Toronto.

One small step towards chasing ghosts, one giant leap for manufacturers of closed-circut television systems. Who needs privacy anyway? If everybody's in the open, no evil can happen. Right? Right?....

Because, let's face it. Why examine the issue at the heart of the matter when you can simply hard-wire cities to resemble maximum security prisons? Oh, I suppose that would make us inmates. Small price to pay though for the war against terrorism.

Remember when you were young and you'd pull the sheets over your head and pretend it protected you from harm? Yeah, same thing.
