A shocking lack of common sense



OK, that picture has no direct relationship to the story but I’ll post it to make a point.  The TSA, [[Transportation Security Administration]], in the US is now completely out of control.  A story from Seattle (KOMO TV site with link to video).  Two soldiers were accompanying the body of a colleague at Seattle’s SEATAC airport when they were forced to remove their uniforms at a security checkpoint because their buttons and medals set off the alarms.

As if making sure the skies are safe from our toothpaste and mouthwash wasn’t enough.  The unidentified TSA screener is now officially in the running for the Asshat of the Year award.
