Are our priorities, as a society, in need of a readjustment? It is disheartening to realize that it is harder to smuggle contraband into the three local professional sports arenas than it appears to be to smuggle a shotgun into a "highly secure building" in the Washington Navy Yard.
Over the past couple of years I have been poked, swiped, wanded, searched, passed through metal detectors and patted down entering Pens, Pirates and Steelers games. All I ever see being confiscated is the occasional pop can, bottle of beer, container of water or a stray umbrella. Do these searches make me feel safe? Not really, but I guess the facade of safety is better than none at all.
