Homeland Security Causes Travellers Absurd Hassles

Dear Source,
I went to St. John yesterday for the first time since the fences were put up. What a change in the feeling of going there? Then on the return trip you had an argument between a male senior citizen and the ticket girl at the booth. She comes out screaming that he is breaching security and she wasn’t going to let him on the boat. This went on for a full eight minutes keeping everyone inline extremely tense… Now you’ve got 17-year-old girls thinking they are part of homeland security and they are acting like immigration officers. It was so absurd.
