Look Out !

There is a disquieting story on NPR radio this morning. In the aftermath of the horrible actions in London, NPR is asking transit services in this country, the USA, what measures they are taking to protect our commuters. The transit authorities are asking the riding public to be aware of their neighbor's and fellow riders, watch for loose packages, people acting "strangely", whatever that means, etc. This is all well and good, but, the part that alerted me was when the San Francisco BART official was asked what they are doing he said,"to report people photographing things that would not be of interest to the general public". I know there are many reports of photographers being questions since 9/11, but I find this chilling.
