This morning I'm regretting my lack of photo evidence of the "Ode to CVS" art installation TSA was gathering at security checkpoints the USA over. I got to thinking about it and am wondering about a couple issues.
1. Why, if they're scared of liquid explosives and forcing the people to discard these potentially dangerous items, are they fine with PILING THEM UP ALL TOGETHER-LIKE in the most crowded parts of airports?
2. What good does all this purging the toothpaste into "Ode to CVS" do if anyone can carry a small vial of dangerous liquid in his pocket and head straight through the metal detector. We simply don't have liquid detectors. I don't think. And not too many folks get selected for further screening (also done with a metal detector and not a liquid detector).
3. One of these terrorists from London was the mother of a 6 month-old. She would have made it through any airport even yesterday by putting the stuff in a juice sippy cup.
Yes, DCeiver, I believe I did see a renewed spark in GWB's eyes yesterday as he told us about all the people who want us dead.
