Security Guard

    There seems to be quite the emphasis on security these days. Everywhere you look, there are security guards, locks, barriers, and restricted access. In most stores there are magnetic detectors at the doors, to deter shoplifters, and hidden cameras to try and catch them in the act. It seems that nearly everywhere you go these days, and for everything you do, an I.D. is required. The events of 9/11, and the Department of Homeland Security, certainly added to this; but it really on accelerated a developing trend which was already in place.
