Oversecurity

I'm sitting at gate G17, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, waiting to board my flight back to San Diego (en route from my scenic ancestral home outside Chicago.) I count seven gate security screeners. Either they're putting on a show for the Christian youth group chaperones on the flight (returning from New York,) or they fear that Christian youth groups could be dangerous cover identities for hordes of extremist Muslim terrorists.

Even though the group's really white, I'll put my money on the latter. >:-)
