Doing something for the sake of doing something, not for the sake of making places safer...
From Schneier on Security, the best place to keep up with the latest in Security Theater comes a good article on how Metal Detectors at Sports Stadiums are useless and just a case of "Something must be done. This is something. Therefore, we must do it." Never mind if the something makes any sense or not.
