Yes - I had a similar experience with 'security checks' where access was easily gained with IDs with head and shoulders pictures of chimpanzees. If you are the 500th ID being checked on a busy night there may not be a lot of attention to 'detail'.

Let's face it, to security guys, passengers all look the same.

(but still not totally secure)

This is an oxymoron. Stay calm and move along, please.

* that very same terrorist organisation promised us a "summer of blood"
* we are all more than aware that "security" is largely illusory
* arming oneself in the US is laughably easy...

Yet ... the only bangs I heard on July 4th were from fireworks (thank God - and the DHS )

So, WHERE DID ALL THE TERRORISTS GO?
Well there seem to be plenty in France for a start...

Sounds crazy? It is.
OK, how late do you want to make it, Pal? I have all day.
