Amtrak will now randomly check IDs:
Amtrak conductors have begun random checks of passengers' IDs as a precaution against terrorist attacks.
This works because, somehow, terrorists don't have IDs.
I've written about this kind of thing before. It's the kind of program that makes us no safer, and wastes everyone's time and Amtrak's money.
