On Security

I love this:


"Huh... So, security is more about the people than their objects?  Who'd'a thunk it?!"

Honestly, unless Evil MacGyver is on the plane, I really don't think that shampoo, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and baby formula are a threat to National Security.  Nor will a good groping or X-Ray Glasses detect a cocaine-mule bomb.  Somebody who knows what they're doing can do as much damage with a pen as with a knife, if they even need a manual weapon at all.

Can we stop the madness?  Who is this security theatre for, anyway?  Who benefits besides bureaucrats and the screeners?
