Advantage terrorists........all it takes is for us to be wrong once.

There are around 40,000 suicide bombers who joined a movement in Iran against the West. Young or old men and women included in the mix. If you extract 98 percent who might not follow thru with the act that still leaves over a thousand who will. Do you know where these zealots are Chris?

When Security Personnel are doing their job, I simply look them in the eye and say thank you to show some respect for their effort on our behalf. I respect people who place themselves in harms way to keep our families safe.

The main reason we haven't been hit again is the security wall we put up around large public venues since 9/11. It is not, as you may believe Chris, because of a lack of desire on the Islamists part. The Intel proves otherwise I can assure you.

Stick to Golf blogging and leave Security for Americans to the professionals.

>>>>>>There were so many rent-a-cops, real cops and Homeland Security types at Winged Foot that they made Phil Mickelson's fan army look small by comparison.


they didn't succeed however in making Phil's man boobs look small.

Could some of the security at the Open needed lessons in customer service? Sure.

But take a look at what goes on daily in the Middle East. These terrorists bomb crowded outdoor places where people gather, they bomb buses and train stations. Similar to what nearly every fan at the US Open had to experience.

Take the government to task for their lack of security at the other places you mentioned, but lay off their effort to keep a high profile and globally televised event safe for the people who were in attendance.

I was at the Open on Saturday and Sunday, and the security was nothing like this joker says it was. How else do you think I and about everyone else there snuck in cell phones, not to mention the guy on 18 who let the air horn go while vijay was putting. Im sure the 60 year old did something stupid to get the security person after him, but failed to mention it...

"Without mentioned Wie's name, you have nothing to write about." (Typo left in for effect) SM, you just made an interesting observation, though I'm sure it was purely coincidental. I think Mr. Baldwin has much to write about, just this week he has covered security at the Open, a beseball hero's return and has even thrown in a little golf, but nobody seems to be listening. Why, because, all people want to hear about on this site is Michelle Wie. Wie fans claim that Baldwin is using their idol to make his name, well of course he is, nobody reads these blogs when her name is not mentioned. Phil Mickleson completes one of the biggest collapses in golf history and 30 people chime in. Michelle Wie gets a "B" in Algebra and 200 people share their thoughts. So who is really worse Baldwin for knowing his audience or Wie's fans for waiting with baited breath for him to write about Wie and then bashing him when he doesn't.
