STUPID SECURITY….Over at Winds of Change they have links to the winners of Privacy International’s contest for the most inexplicable, intrusive, counterproductive, annoying, and egregious security measures put in place around the world since 9/11. That’s five separate categories for you, with multiple winners in each category.

My favorite so far is the woman who wasn’t allowed to visit her son in prison because she wasn’t wearing a bra. However, I haven’t read them all, so there may be even more ridiculous ones lurking further on in the list of winners. Check it out, and then decide whether to laugh or cry.
