The article focuses on the security situation of Capitol Hill, Washington D.C. during the celebration of Independence Day in the U.S. According to the author, his friend lamented the celebration in 2005 because instead of hearing music, he found barriers, bag checks machine guns and strict regulations on where to go and what to do. The author added that inane and intrusive security measures are so common that future generations probably will not even complain.
