Why don't we call it what it really is....KU using Homeland Security as an excuse to charge everyone $5 for a bottle of water.

It is interesting that our STATE (as opposed to USA) is certainly willing to add to the firemen's and policemen's duties, but no one is willing to pay them for the increased danger and duties.Martial law will never work if you don't pay the bottom end enforcers. But of course, there is always trigger-happy killers like Blackwater to do it for them, if they are considered to be falling down on the dubiously expanded jobs.

It's funny to read people say they want access to their "stuff"What do you need at a football game? Honestly? Drink BEFORE the game if you must. Drinking during the game only creates dumb and indecent student sections. Just bring your voice in the stadium, that is all that is needed!

I actually agree with you jrlii. Department of Homeland Security seems an awful lot like the gestapo. If you seem guilty, you must be guilty.

Another step down the slippery slope to tyranny.Use government inspired and perpetuated paranoia as an excuse to infringe upon the movements of citizens (and their access to their stuff!)
