I couldn’t agree more with Stephen Silver’s eloquent letter, except to point out that drones already are used here, both along the border with Mexico and in many cities across the nation. And in fact they are here in the skies of New Mexico (which I share with Dr. Silver), as seen by a friend and by a reporter for The Atlantic: The drone “pilots” on their base in southern New Mexico use us for practice because our beloved northern New Mexico mountains bear such a strong resemblance to Afghanistan. How does it feel to have a drone following your car? Just look up.
