Is That A Laptop In Your Bomb, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?
Oh, happy day! The airport security geniuses are going to pay special attention to electronic devices like cameras...and laptops. Great idea -- in concept. Many of the screeners Ive encountered not only couldnt find five sticks of dynamite if I duct-taped them to my forehead, they probably couldnt find Bin Laden himself if they were seated next to him in an Al Quaida training camp. One clueless female screener who examined my computer at LAX a few months ago seemed shed be challenged just using a telephone with a dial pad. Slapping my keyboard with her big, ham-fisted gloved paws, she was shocked when this caused items on the desktop to open:

Miss Ham Fists: I said I was sorry I deleted the book you were writing, didnt I?

(Okay, it wasnt that bad -- but it could have been if I werent a micro-managing bitch.)

Very funny!
The security guard repetively attempted to check out my grandfather, obviously thinking that he was a terrorist but the guard probabl wanted to literally check him out.
