Airport security: I feel so much safer...

From:

"Stick 'em up! I've got a gun!"

...to...

"Stick 'em up! I'm wearing a T-shirt with a picture of a cartoon-character holding a cartoon gun!"

I've been spared thus far, but both my poor wife and my poor daughter have had absurd experiences at the hands of airport security. I am 100% in favor of the concept, but I think political correctness and attendant nutcasedly skewed priorites have well-nigh vitiated effectiveness.

Bill Maher once wrote, "98% of Arab people are not terrorists, but 98% of terrorists are Arab." His point is not racial profiling, but pulling people who look like Sharon Stone (his example) just to look like we're being even-handed isn't efficient.

Serves the guy right for wearing a Megatron instead of an Optimus Prime T-Shirt.
