The shoe bomber ordeal caused a change in security that requires everyone to remove their shoes for security purposes.
The changes being made to keep us safe on airplanes now that the latest crazy Muslim has taken a swipe at us:
Passengers getting off flights from overseas reported being told that they couldn’t get out of their seat for the last hour of their flight. Air Canada also said that during the last hour passengers won’t be allowed access to carry-on baggage or to have any items on their laps.
Whether or not this method of added security is a good thing will no doubt be hotly debated over the coming weeks. From my perspective we’re just inches away from requiring complete strip searches before boarding an airline. I still look pretty good in my Hanes, so I don’t really care.
On the other hand, it’s only a matter of time before some enterprising young terrorist decides to jam their favorite homemade incendiary up their ass, at which point, “alien probe” will take on a whole new connotation.
