If only Franz Kafka were alive to write the sequel. A good title would be "The List." Mother Jones has a remarkable story about an American citizen of Pakistano descent who left the United States in perfectly good standing, but on the way home found himself apparently on the "no fly" list:
The basic outrage here is obvious: in a liberal democracy, no citizen should be subjected to this kind of treatment without due process. And the no-fly list not only doesn't incorporate due process, it goes out of its way to be the most Orwellian possible denial of due process imaginable. You are on a list. Maybe. But we won't tell you. How can I get off the list? Well, who says you're on a list in the first place? But I can't fly. Sorry, we can't comment on that. Rinse and repeat.
