THE TWO DUMBEST QUESTIONS MAY BE DROPPED: According to an article linked to by GC Lionel Mandrake in his letter from the Olde Countrie blog, the two questions that everyone gets asked when they check their bags (you do have them memorized right?) may be dropped. The article quotes Air Transport Association spokesman Michael Wascom, who proves that he’s smarter than Norman Mineta, when he says, “All passengers do not pose equal security threats. Why should we continue to ask these simple questions of everyone? We should be focusing on people who are higher security risks.”

Now there’s a thought!
