It is good that the Senate feels this way. Of course, I have to wonder how it let those two dummies, Senator Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, and Senator Byron Dorgan, D-North Dakota, get away with banning Bic lighters.

Did it really feel that by hiring extra screeners to make certain that nobody is going to flick his Bic it will really "get the job done better with the money that's there now"?
Ah, but how do you feel about the anti-tax crusader (Bush, R-USA) proposing to double the ticket tax? Maybe we'll here that it was the largest tax increase in aviation history from the Dittohead society? I should live so long.
