I took Amtrak to Washington, D.C. last week and was astounded that there was no security whatsoever on either end of the trip.
I bought my ticket online, picked it up at a machine by using a credit card. No ID was required. Nobody knew who I was. Nobody checked my ID, my bags or anyone else’s.
Business class gets you nothing more than a reserved seat. No frequent traveler miles, no beverages, no pillow or blankies.
From now on, I’ll fly. At least airports make some effort to appear that they take security seriously.
