is pondering “the houskeeper did it” portion of GW’s lying biography. I was really digging the idea that Bab’s was baking cookies, smoking a cigarette, having a cocktail and whipping out fetuses in bottles to shock her children…some things just aren’t what they cracked up to be.

A Waste of Money and Time

A short history of airport security: We screen for guns and bombs, so the terrorists use box cutters. We confiscate box cutters and corkscrews, so they put explosives in their sneakers. We screen footwear, so they try to use liquids. We confiscate liquids, so they put PETN bombs in their underwear. We roll out full-body scanners, even though they wouldn’t have caught the Underwear Bomber, so they put a bomb in a printer cartridge. We ban printer cartridges over 16 ounces — the level of magical thinking here is amazing — and they’re going to do something else.

Take all the money spent on new security measures and spend it on investigation and intelligence.

This is a stupid game, and we should stop playing it.
