14. And you just KNOW how dangerous a guy in socks can be on a
polished floor.

Those lazy asses that work for DHS cannot catch their own shadows.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Officials shut down and evacuated part of the Delta Air Lines terminal at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Friday after a man's shoes set off an alarm for explosives residue, officials said.

The man was allowed to leave the security area before the security alert was resolved, an official of the Transportation Security Administration in Washington said, and authorities were searching for him.

A witness told CNN that 600 to 700 people were evacuated from the terminal.

The Transportation Security Administration official said just before 3 p.m., a male passenger going through a security checkpoint at the Delta terminal set off a general alert calling for a more thorough examination.

The man removed his shoes for a screening, which detected the possible presence of explosives residue. The man apparently then proceeded beyond the security checkpoint, the
TSA spokesman said. It was unclear why he was allowed to go on.
