America's Finest at Work, Part V

In June the TSA began putting the names of people who show up at airports without identification on a watch list of people who broke security regulations or acted suspiciously (like trying to sneak on board with a 3 oz. can of shaving cream in their carry-on). At last count the list had over 16,000 names.

But this past Tuesday TSA chief Kip Hawley told USA Today that the Administration will no longer keep records on travelers who show up at their airport without ID.

It's just as well: how would they know whom they were keeping records on?

Oh, so I'm probably on this list because they found a knife in my bag last year? Fantastic.

(I didn't know it was there - I swear!)
