TSA: Protecting the skies from random Congressional staffers

“Sir, you’ve been randomly selected for extra screening; would you please step aside?” Deferential, polite, well-meaning though she was, this whole idea forced a lighthearted but clearly disdainful smirk out of me.

“You’re just the lucky No. 10 is all,” she said.

“Precisely, ma’am.”

She may as well have said, “Sir, we have no reason to suspect at all that you intend to bring down a plane tonight, but I have to pretend I’m doing ‘something, anything’ to make people believe I’m here for a reason.”

But she didn’t. And she obviously isn’t as good at even this silly randomness concept, either, since she gave a guy like me – someone who, according to their politically correct random-check paradigm, was more likely than the nine people before and after me to be a terrorist – some valuable intel’: all I had to do was step back and alert all the terrorists to be sure they’re not Lucky No. 10 tonight as they’re checked by America’s Finest.
