Wright said Wednesday that he had not known of the electrical problems at the pool.

Re "What Rights Are Left After Sept. 11?" by Steve Lopez, Nov. 30: Jason Steinberg's encounter with the National Guard trooper at LAX is chilling. What might have happened if Steinberg had refused to turn over his film, given that the woman guarding our security was probably armed?
