    I see flying saucers.

    Be prepared to defend your rights or LOSE them. Do you think once a 'no photography' law is passed, that it will be repealed?

    When I see an anthill, I step over it. I don't put on mountain climbing gear.

    But clearly though - this is a growing trend, don't you think? It may not affect you and you may not care, but it seems there are increasing numbers of photographers who are being affected by this, being accosted by security personnel with a dubious understanding of the law...

    Personally, I feel this is not cool, and may be some sort of test bed for things to come. I think anything we can do, including writing to congressmen, etc., will be helpful.

    I'm in Chicago most of this week on business, and I saw this (?) item on the local news this morning (August 28, not 16) that said that UP and Metra had rescinded an earlier item (which prohibited photography), and now DOES allow photography from the Metra platforms.

    They said that they still reserve the right to question anybody acting suspicious, with a camera or not.

    Cool deal, thanks for updating, I'm glad to see common sense prevailed. This could not have possibly been a corprate decision.

    It sounds to me like it WAS a corporate decision - through and through - but that they realized what they were doing was fascist and was attracting a lot of bad press! So - that's why they rescinded. I'm guessing, anyway...!

    Frank - when you cover one eye... are they still there? You might want to go to an opthamologist for that.
