Morning in America

From the photograher Dean Shaddock:

This was captured as I collected my things from airport security (Detroit Metro Concourse A). I think of it as something like a Rorschach test. Is an elderly Catholic nun being frisked by a Muslim security agent the celebration of blind justice? Or is it simply an admission of absurdity?


Update: So, 3+ years after I posted this image, Drudge Report appears to have ripped it off without attribution.
