Funny story 'bout customs:

A fellow scholar and chain-smoker recently went to spend a weekend with her boyfriend in Tennessee. Thing is, she the misfortune of a passport pic that made her look like she'd "just come in off the boat" (her term).
Here's a near-acurate non-excerpt of her journey through customs:

Customs: So, where you off too?
Friend: Spending the weekend in Tennessee.

C: Really? And do you have any intentions of coming back again?
F: What? Well, yeah. That's pretty much the plan.

C: Why? How do we know that you'll return to Canada?
F: Seriously? Well, for one thing, it's Tennessee. Other than that, I've got school, my family, my home, my friends, all my possessions, a job....

C: Can you prove it?
F: Here; have my class schedule. It shows I have to be back by Monday. Are you serious?

C: Okay, come with me.
And proceeds to lead her to a big, fat door marked "Immigration".
Where, an hour later, another customs officer proceeds to ask her the exact same questions, followed by:

C: So, have you ever been denied entry to the U.S. before?
F: No!

C: So this will be your first time?
F: Wait, are you denying me entry? You're kidding me!

Yeah. Then there was a nice long back and forth of her laughing, the customs officer yelling at her for laughing, as "this was no laughing matter," and then they went through her luggage.

And "confiscated" her lube, which wasn't even in her carry on.

Dangerous stuff, that lube.

That story is hysterical. They [the government, the agencies, the agents] just make the shit up as they go along. I thought the carry-ons were the problem. I guess it's the lube in the cargo hold.

I'd still like to focus elsewhere. Let's say we start with the ports.

As one of the first flights out of Dulles the day it reopened - there was a lot of togetherness among the staff, gaurds and travelers that day. A feeling that we had to look out for eachother and come together - anyway the feeling never seemed to catch on.
