Light 'Em If Ya Got 'Em
"Surprisingly enough, sometimes the state actually comes to its senses."John Venlet on a TSA un-ban.
I always doubt that pretty hard. It makes sense to me to always attribute the worst possible impulses -- if not motives -- to these peoples' actions. Stupidity will always do well, if not outright caprice and malice, and they always rate the active presumption in their very nature as apparat: it's instructive to note that everyone with a brain knew that this was noxious horseshit in the first place.
This swerve is probably about the pain in the ass it must be to keep shoveling captured and surrendered lighters out of airports every night.
Someone alert me when I can fly with my toothpaste again without checking a bag. That's a big deal to me.
While I'm linking John: I hope y'all are hitting him every day. He puts up worthy links and snipes, so make him a regular.
