Another botched terrorist attack on a plane, another silly TSA rule. Apparently airline passengers are being told to stay in their seats for the final hour of flights and not to have anything in their laps.
Passengers getting off flights from overseas reported being told that they couldn’t get out of their seat for the last hour of their flight. Air Canada also said that during the last hour passengers won’t be allowed access to carry-on baggage or to have any items on their laps.
Uh, are we to believe that terrorists will cease and desist if they don’t think they can down a plane in its final hour of flight? Al-Qaeda only counts a terrorist attack as successful if it occurs near the plane’s final destination? Bring the plane down at 75 minutes out and you don’t get your 72 virgins?
Some inconvenience is inevitable in trying to protect flights from terrorists. But inconvenience should not become a substitute for vigilance. Yet again, the TSA seems to think it is more important to appear to be doing something than to be doing something useful.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
