Shoot the Messenger Dept: The TSA has come down hard on a California airline pilot for posting video on YouTube pointing out the "smoke and mirrors" – down to medieval rescue ax in the cockpit – that is airport security. He also took video of four federal air marshals and two sheriff's deputies turning up at his house to confiscate his federally-issued gun – 'cause we all know how dangerous truth-tellers can be.
"As you can see, airport security is kind of a farce. It's only smoke
and mirrors so you people believe there is actually something going on
here." – pilot narration as he shows maintenance crews blithely coming and going.
