Act Like a Man, and We’ll Arrest You

Interesting article in the Philadelphia Inquirer today about a blind man from Brussels who, not bein’ from around these parts, didn’t realize that American freedom meant the Freedom Not to Question Official Procedures. Also the Freedom to Act Like a Slave. Not to mention the Freedom to Get Shoved Around and Imprisoned Without Knowing the Charges.

But thank God we have all of these air-travel rules and regulations in place. I mean, because otherwise the terrorists would have already won.  Fortunately, our manly, spirit of ’76 freedom remains intact, just as the founders intended.

    Another victory for the Jihad Rope-A-Dope.

    One of my favorite activities, when I have time is to actually act civil or even, do something nice for someone while being patient in an airport because people are programmed to assume it will be a hellish interlude and so are almost joyously shocked when somebody acts civilly. Normally, I’m a complete crank but in airports, when traveling, a little play-acting is a fine diversion. The smallest thing elicits an almost reverent response and it appeals to my megalomania.
