To ensure we Americans never offend anyone--particularly fanatics intent on killing us -- airport screeners will not be allowed to profile people. They will continue random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President's security detail and 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips. Let's pause a moment and take the following test: In 1979, the U.S. embassy in Iran was taken over by: a) Norwegians from Ballard; b) Elvis; c) A tour bus full of 80-year-old women; or d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40. In 1983, the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by: a) A pizza delivery boy; b) Crazed feminists complaining that being able to throw a grenade beyond its own burst radius was an unfair and sexist requirement in basic training; c) Geraldo Rivera making up for a slow news day; or d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by: a) Luca Brazzi, for not being given a part in "Godfather 2;" b) The Tooth Fairy; c) Butch and Sundance who had a few sticks of dynamite left over from the train robbery d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40. In 1998, the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by: a) Mr. Rogers; b) Hillary, to distract attention from Wild Bill's women problems; c) The World Wrestling Federation to promote its next villain: "Mustapha the Merciless;" d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked and destroyed by: a) Bugs Bunny, Wiley E. Coyote, Daffy Duck, and Elmer Fudd. b) The Supreme Court of Florida trying to outdo their attempted hijacking of the 2000 Presidential election; c) Mr. Bean d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40. Nope, no patterns anywhere, so why should we profile? If the terrorists were half smart, they would just sit back and let this country die of civil rights and "terminal" stupidity.

But then there is: Tim McVeigh Ted Kaczinsky Charlie Manson I think we *should* profile, but that'll open a big 'ol can of worms... how many "angry, disaffected white males with a fascination for weapons" would you find on AR15.com? So I'm not disaffected, but...
