No Fly Zone

One by one the stories accumulate of the stupidity of the Homeland Security syetems in America’s airports. An Australian journalist was abysmally treated by the Customs and Border Protection bureau (via Burnt Toast) and a six year old girl is mistreated because someone put the wrong name into some system or other.

Really, any American readers, I’m confident your country is a great place and 90% of you are lovely people, but whilst you have this stupid and pointless crap going on at your airports (especially since my opinions are at odds with those of your Chimp in Chief) I’m not heading over to find out.
