It was recently reported that the TSA required this 95-year old woman to remove her diaper before getting through security.  Well, that’s not exactly what happened.  According to the most recent report, the woman’s daughter, Jean Weber, told CNN on Monday that the TSA agents acted professionally and never ordered the removal of her mother’s diaper.    However, Weber said the agents made it clear that her mother could not board the plane unless they were able to inspect the diaper.    The daughter complied so she and her mother could catch their flight.  So, here we have this little old lady in a wheelchair, who no doubt looks like al-Qaeda to me,  being told she can’t pass security without someone checking out her diaper, while you have US Airways permitting this freak to board an airplane.  Now, I don’t know if this guy was wearing this monstrosity of an outfit when he went through security, but, according to the airline, “We don’t have a dress code policy…  So if they’re not exposing their private parts, they’re allowed to fly.”  Would you want to sit next to this guy?  I sure wouldn’t.  Keep in mind that just six days before this loon got on board, US Airways wouldn’t allow some other dopey guy on the plane because he was wearing droopy pants.

I don’t know if TSA wants to appear as if they’re not profiling passengers.  But requiring this old lady to undress in order to find out if she’s carrying any contraband in her diaper is ridiculous.  But, then again, maybe they let this guy through because there wasn’t any place for him to hide anything.

If I didn’t like to travel so much, I’d almost be tempted to just stay home.
