This is gettng fun to watch!

Via W, again...
The update of airline security rules follows what U.S. government authorities called a thwarted attempt by an individual on Christmas day to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight as it approached Detroit from Amsterdam.

President Barack Obama said that as a result of this oversight, he had ordered a thorough review of the screening process.
So as a result of the oversight of the brave men and women of the (cue heroic fanfare) Transportation Safety Administration, you may use the restroom rather than sit there and pee yourself - if the Captain says you can. Of course it couldn't have anything to do with:
Airline industry experts have said renewed terror threats and potentially tighter airport security measures could dampen business travel demand just as it starts to recover.

Shares of U.S. airlines slumped Monday, the first trading session following the attempted attack. The Arca Airline index fell 1.8 percent.


When the little girl says, "But Daddy, that man isn't wearing any clothes!" I don't want her to be looking at a line of airline passengers. Still possible, though.

Gah! C is flying back to the right coast in a few weeks. It's looking like it will be an extra long day for her =(.
