Australian Airport Security Seems To Be Taking Lessons From Retail

There are days when I think airport security people are present primarily to make retail security people feel better. At least that's how I felt when I saw this wonderful picture of an actual sign at the Dubbo City Airport in New South Wales, Australia. Yes, it's a printout declaring the security access code for a restricted gate and, yes, the printout is taped to the gate in question.

A story in the Australian newspaper Daily Telegraph quoted airport Corporate Development Director Megan Dixon saying the access code "was posted on the gate to allow 'itinerant airport workers who have security clearance to use this gate. We had a security audit last year, which we passed.'" Kind of makes one homesick for PCI, no?
