Improper Search?

A friend of mine, along with all the rest of the people waiting to board this morning's ferry, got searched by a Coast Guard dog. He complained a little bit, but no one else did. Then he sent an email to me and some other friends.

One of his friends commented that he'd rather put up with the inconvenience than read about it in the paper later, or, worse, have to be fished out of 40 degree bay water.

I couldn't resist answering with a little classic Ben Franklin:

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
