185. The timing of these crazy procedures
should be a factor. The Thanksgiving weekend is the most heavily trafficed time of year, and I suspect that with so many more people travelling, there will also be an increase in hellish incidents that will be made public. Whatta choice - either be X-rayed or patted down???

Anyone here remember a time when you could walk up to an airline ticket counter a couple of hours before a flight and write a check for a ticket? I remember pretty decent choices offered meal-wise, too.

As for Barack, he seriously needs to bring John Edwards former campaign manager on board. I forget his name, but he's on MSNBC once in awhile. Very forthright, articulate guy. He should lose Gibbs and Axelrod - they are doing him no favors.
