one for the road
One more before I head out the door. Finally.
Paul Kenneth Donahue, 50, and Teresa Marie Wood, 46, had been scheduled to fly from San Jose, California, to Atlanta, Georgia, on Delta Flight 576 Tuesday. When their bags were put through a bomb detection machine, federal screeners found what turned out to be a snow boot with batteries, wires and an electrical power strip arranged in a suspicious way.
Screeners also found a note that read, "To the uniformed puppet opening this bag -- congratulations. You've just brought this once free nation one step closer to becoming a fascist police state," according to Transportation Security Administration spokesman Robert Johnson. The note was scribbled on one side of the cardboard torn from a box of Cracklin' Oat Bran.
Only January 3 and already we have a frontrunner for Assholes of the Year.
If I had been in that airport and my flight was held up because of these idiots, I would have cheered the police on as they arrested the couple. After I made sure to let them know just how assinine, counter-productive and stupid their little protest was.
The more I read, the more I'm beginning to think that most protesters have smoked one too many bongs.
