FINALLY added some new photos to my flickr account

Even though I’ve been back from my vacation for about three weeks now, I finally got around to uploading some of the photos to my flickr account. As you enjoy these wonderful images, bear in mind that they were taken with one of those disposable cameras.

I know the Republicans aren’t too fond of Ted Kennedy, but this is nuts – it’s not like he’s going to be flying the plane

Read an interesting (infuriating? exasperating? article in the Globe and Mail this morning. It seems that in their sometimes over-zealous attempt to stop people from hijacking airplanes, U.S. Transportation Security Administration officials are grilling infants (and long-time Senators) whose names match or are similar to names on the famous “no-fly” list.

I understand that it is important to flag people that you suspect might be up to no good (and Ted Kennedy is no angel), but what in the hell happened to common sense? How in the world could someone who can’t speak or feed himself (and I’m talking about babies, not Ted Kennedy) possibly hijack an airliner?

They’re considering relaxing the rules regarding carry-on luggage (you might not have to check your nail clippers or machete), but they’re going to take an infant in the back and grill him for information about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden? Stupid.

Just a quick, semi-random thought

If I had a car (actually, that should probably read, “if I could drive and if I had a car”) I’d put in a speedometer that measures velocity in feet per minute. Imagine this cellphone conversation, “Hi sweetheart! I’m calling from the road! I’m doing three hundred and twenty thousand!”

Good idea?
