  1. What gets me is that we have forgotten what is normal if you live in a democratic country. The ability to travel should not be dependent on an “emergency”. The patronizing official put down “showing the new baby to the family in America is not an emergency” is disgusting and should be irrelevant.
    We are on a slippery slope.
