Yes, and I had been given plenty and I was taking just then.

That was my point, which can be made by a word that even I think to be crass.

So I hope you can understand why I used it.

I understand.

(That word grates on me like no other.)

No child is left behind when it comes to TSA!

No baby would get through a TSA line with a "explosive jacket" - that is actually one of the things they are trained for (parents using children as decoys). It is sad...but that is how the terrorists think (and our very own sonoftelepunk).

Sonoftelepunk - you have now been added to the No-Fly-List.

actually, the list is updated just about daily. names are removed and added.

Interesting that the idea of using the restricted resources as effectively as possible is considered hysterical. I suppose that the other options are do nothing or do everything ~ if every single person was submitted for full checks before boarding planes then there would be no cause for alarm; no profiling at all could take place.

Bombs can be detected with effective security technology, when you are trying to defend against hijackings they are probably going to be men aged 15 - 50, religion is a factor but it is not an effective means for profiling because anybody intent on doing such damage maintains a lower profile of adherence. Just look at the manner in which the 9/11 hijackers indulged in life before the attacks, it can minimise suspicion.

There should be a degree of profiling, which I said should probably age and sex; the September 11 hijackers, Trade Center Bombers, London Bombers, Richard Reid the Shoe Bomber etc. were all Muslim males aged 15 - 50, but if you exclusively profile on religion it is too tight and there are weaknesses. Sex and age are two broad factors that cut the potential pool by more than 50%.

Sometimes they do contain bombs - dirty ones - hazmat city

I've got it! No men at all allowed on airplanes!

Think of it: bathrooms would be cleaner and smell better, fewer drunk men getting nasty with the flight crew, the female flight attendants wouldn't get harrassed, and since all the pilots prosecuted for drunk flying have been men so far, the pilot would be sober! And, no bombers!! Since they're all men so far, and profiling "works" keeping the guys off the plane is a win-win for everyone.

Well, almost. But hey, if it keeps one bomber from blowing up a plane, it's all worth it, and I'm more than willing to make the sacrifice.
