The Emperor's passengers wear no clothes

It seems no one thinks the new improved airport security is making the world safer for flying.

The new "Keystone Kops" approach to security is costing airlines millions of dollars, says Ryanair, one of Europe's top airlines. The airline has threatened to sue the British government for compensation unless airport security measures are returned to normal within seven days.

Michael O'Leary, chief executive officer of Ryanair, ridiculed the notion of searching five- or six-year-old children and elderly people in wheelchairs going to Spain. He said such scenes would have "terrorists laughing in the caves of Afghanistan."

Speaking of laughing, Bro. John Ratcliff tells us that now that terrorists have created bombs made out of fabric, passengers are being required to disrobe down to their skivvies before boarding airliners.

Captain Oveur: "You ever been in a cockpit before?"
Joey: "No sir, I've never been up in a plane before."
Captain Oveur: "You ever seen a grown man naked?"
