New Airport Security. Oh, Goody.

I understand the need for security, but I just dread flying back to school at the end of December recess.

Last week, a would-be terrorist tried to set his pants on fire during the last hour of a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. Because of that, all airline passengers will face even more restrictions on what they can do and what they can carry.

I’m not very worried about terrorists. That’s just a microscopic possibility, like getting hit by a meteor or winning the lottery. But it’s absolutely certain that getting on a plane will be even more of a pain than it has been already.

Look at the latest terrorism attempt. It didn’t succeed. Neither did all the airport security measures that supposedly keep us safe but which, sometimes, seem to require extra-special attention to college-age women. (That’s the nicest way I can put it.)
