A 19 year old convicted felon walked onto a plane at LAX with no ticket and hid in the bathroom. National Security problems aside, this story will really aggravate traveling Americans. How can it be that a normal person can hardly get on a plane, and a 19 year old felon in sunglasses can just walk on without a ticket?
On one of our last trips to the airport, security pulled out our 75 year old friend, searched her luggage, and questioned her for 15 minutes over her knitting needles. This produced one of the world's funniest stories. My wife will dine out for years on the strength of it. Other than the fact that the woman could talk you to death, who would she be a threat to?
America is becoming a place where it is easier to beat the system than to obey it.
