The IT department was "advised" via cattle prod to install keyboard-monitoring trackwar into all employee's computers.  Any employee registering lest than 35,000 keystrokes a day will have their paychecks reduced proportionally post-tax.





And beaten.

So, Marathon day.  I'm still working two blocks from the finish line. Security is tight, but no one is carrying assault rifles, at least in the open.  I have no idea what's going on in those paddy wagons and vans.

The perimeters they set up are about a block or two from the crowds, which is actually very smart, as there's no residual chaos to deal with, and there are enough "check points" to inspect bags and socially profile people (Israeli-style, chatting people up rather than grilling them) without too much hassle.

I realize this is all closing-of-barn-doors-after-fugitive-equus, so there's an incredibly small probability of violence.  So the increased security upsets me and doesn't bother me in equal amounts.  It's useless, but it's useless.

My hope is that it won't be this intense next year, but I fear that the door has been opened, and this is the new normal.

You work in an environment envisioned by Hunter Thompson, but none of you are on LSD.

Is this one of those "you should see the other guy" situations?

Man, I haven't been in a straight up fight with someone in... ever.

Genderescent.

No.  Just no.  WHY DO YOU NEED A SPECIFIC TERM FOR THIS?
