God forbid, somebody shows up at an airport somewhere in the world with an explosive tucked up in his lower colon. The Achtung people will come up with some new security procedures that will effectively kill airline travel, and then this enormous bureaucracy can turn its attention to the nation's highways. Pull over at the checkpoint, get out of the car, open the trunk, take off your shoes, put your hands on the top of the car, turn your head to the right, and cough.

I harbor enough explosive gas in my colon to warm a small restroom stall.

I just read the first paragraph of that article and think this guy is a moron.
"Everyone knows it's ridiculous -- the notion that you can toss together a few liquids and make an explosive is a fiction from late-night movies." I believe it could be possible to create explosives from liquids.

"The way to stop terrorists on planes is to encourage passengers to bring loaded firearms aboard. Where's the NRA when you need 'em?" When people trying to kill you are not afraid of death, then firearms are not much of a deterrent. And when idiot passengers are allowed carry firearms on board, terrorists are no longer your main problem.

I can't stand people like Garrison Keillor, they are fucking idiots who think they can have some control over their security. Realistically terrorists can kill any of us, on any plane, at any time. Better to make good with your maker and embrace death.

I read that as an ironic statement?
