Linked by Paul Ciano on May 13, 2017

Cory Doctorow:

Pay $7,500/year and $2,700/flight and you can use can use the new “private terminal” at LAX where you are waited on hand-and-foot, including a personal sit-down with the TSA guard who “searches” you before you’re put in a BMW and driven across the tarmac to your flight – best of all, you can watch a live video-feed of normal humans in the public terminal, captioned “Here is a glimpse of what you’re missing over at the main terminal right now,” and featuring “travelers hauling bags through packed terminals, queuing in long lines, looking harassed and being swallowed into pushing, shoving paparazzi scrums – routine hazards for the 80 million people who pass through LAX each year.”
