Letters: Are you a person of interest?

Big Brother is coming to an airport near you. Big Government, which is controlled by Republicans, wants domestic airports to use biometrics to register all travelers when they enter, or leave, our country. Big Business’ is ready.
Delta Airlines is going to start testing facial recognition technology in Minnesota. They say that they want to make checking your bags more efficient. Jet Blue will start testing technology in Boston that will replace boarding passes with face scans. And the Transportation Security Administration wants to substitute fingerprints for IDs and boarding passes.
Every American that travels by plane is now considered a person of interest by our government. Is this how the global war on terror should be fought?
