". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Airport Security

It's a good thing I didn't read this article before our trip to Grenada. It recounts the author's undercover investigation of our supposedly improved and enhanced post-9/11 airline security system. He intentionally dressed and behaved suspiciously in an effort to draw attention to himself, but more often than not no one seemed to care. He also successfully got items on the plane that should not have been allowed there, and he was able to board with forged boarding passes and without proper identification. It's scary to read of all that he got away with.

And to think we couldn't even carry on a few jars of nutmeg jam.

I know of two glaring holes that I noticed when I flew to California two years ago.
