Sunday Night's Dry Ice "Scare" At LAX Proves My Points (And Others') About TSA
It shows that anyone with two brain cells to rub together can get things past TSA "security" puppet show with ease.
As I tweeted Sunday night:
Dry ice explosion inside LAX Terminal 2, by gate 27 (amazing they got it past the repurposed mall clerks, huh?) http://www.insidesocal.com/aviation/2013/10/13/small-explosion-goes-off-sunday-inside-lax-terminal-2/ #TSA
Here's a question for you. You're in charge of a meeting of dignitaries at the State Department. Do you round up some ladies who would otherwise be working at Cinnabon or the DMV so they can keep everybody "safe"?
And no, putting them in costume -- having them dress in uniforms that look kind of like police uniforms -- doesn't make them any less unqualified to do anything but give us the illusion that the government is doing something for us.
