For the folks who didn't see the forest through the trees when I complained about my latest interaction with stupid TSA security theater bullshit:
Here's someone who climbs a fence at the Raleigh-Durham Airport, boards a Delta plane, and hangs out for a bunch of hours.I hope they screened the plane for hair goop and snow globes after they found the guy, just to be extra safe.
Best line of the article:"It blows my mind that you can't get 3.5 ounces of toothpaste on a plane," he said, "yet somebody can sneak on a plane and take a nap."
Exactly. We're spending millions enhancing passenger screening -- new backscatter X-ray machines, confiscating liquids -- and we ignore the other, less secure, paths onto airplanes. It's idiotic, that's what it is.
