How a bunch of jackbooted morons is making life difficult for someone trying to re-enact (without the getting lost and dying part) Amelia Earhart’s historic flight.
McGuire had moved her Electra airplane to the tiny Santa Maria airport in California, a very nice little field very far from big cities. Restoring a 75-year old airplane meant a lot of ad hoc visits by a variety of craftsmen and suppliers who happened to come up with the right part for the plane. Putting every one of them through Federal security checks and certifying them for permanent airport ID cards, before they could drive up to the little airfield and repair an aileron, was bringing the project to a halt.
The TSA has been 100% successful at its only real mission in life, which is to give union jobs to a bunch of knuckle-dragging mouth breathers. If you think they make flying on airlines a whit safer than it was on September 10, 2001 then I have some land in Florida I’d like to sell you.
Ooh, this super-severe 90-day sentence will make them all straighten up and fly right!
“I’m not a bad person. But what I did was wrong. I wanted to say I’m sorry,” Feig said.
No, Devie, you’re not a bad person. You’re a dishonest moron, which is probably why you breezed through the TSA hiring interview.
