It just makes you shake your head in wonder at the depths to which we've allowed ourselves as a nation to sink. I am paying back my mother-in-law for the tickets she bought for my two older sons(12 and 13) to fly home from a school trip in January. I will never willingly subject my children to these ridiculous and invasive "procedures." I've heard some argue that if our security were like Israel's then it would take far too long to get everyone through security at our airports, but what they fail to tell you is that Israel doesn't do random searches. They profile. Yes, profile. A common sense practice that targets those most likely to commit the crimes we are trying to prevent rather than feeling up the elderly, children, and the college cheerleading squad. Why doesn't that make sense?
