If the Transportation Security Administration wants to fix its poor public image, it might want to stop patting down recognizable passengers such as former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.The rest of you, however, be glad you don't get probed.
"There are certain people that are just so well-known that you've just got to use your common sense," said Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Transportation Subcommittee.
First of all, the people of various and sundry other nations from Cambodia to Iraq might strongly dispute whether Rumsfeld or Kissinger are dangerous. Together they've killed a fuck load more innocent civilians than all of Al Qaeda put together.
Second, if you and I have to be inconvenienced, fuck it so do celebrities.
