Sitting at the airport

So this morning, I woke up and steeled myself for the horrors of the increased security lines and haggard travelers. So after parking at Central Parking at Logan Airport, and walking 19 football fields, arrived at the terminal. I finished my coffee and stowed all my loose items into my carry-on.

And then I got stuck behind these people.

Note: Not these actual people. These geezers came up when I did a Google Image Search for "old people." But the folks who looked a lot like this apparently last flew on the Spruce Goose. The guy thought he could keep his cell phone. The wife wanted to know if they had lysol wipes for her bare feet. I got some sympathetic glances from the TSA guy. I do think however that these people need to have their own security line, staffed only by TSA members over 65. That way they can yell at each other and talk about their grandchildren, while other people who want to make their flights are allowed to do so.

Rant over. Talk to you when I get to D.C.

Finally. Something interesting!

Can't you just skip past all those lines since you got all your dope-gov't connections?

You know what's worse than old people on airport lines? Parents with more kids than they have arms. Seriously. If you can't control the children you have now....STOP HAVING BABIES!!!

I hear that kid. I'd like to see one of the TSA guys put the kids through the scanner one day. That would start the parents screaming, and then the TSA guy would say, "Do you want to help the terrorists?"

And the parents would be quiet. Come to think of it, so would the kids.
