(No) Safety in Numbers

Number 1 Son got to attend TeenPact last Friday, so I took a day off work and accompanied him. They held it in one of the committee rooms in the Capital Annex, so we had to go through security.

If you can call it Security at all. Everyone I saw was setting off metal detectors, and no one looked. I had my laptop backpack on, and no one even cared to look. I could have left my backpack anywhere in the place, and no one would have cared a bit. Anyone who was armed could have shot their way through the security and been on the floor of either House in a matter of moments.

I'm really glad no one has felt the need to attack Kentucky's State Government, because it would be easy to do.
