As noted by Myra Adams, writing...|
|7/3/2015 - Some stories are so unbelievable and over-the-top that you might swear they were fabrications – and this is one of them.

|6/5/2015 - If there is a more hapless, incompetent federal agency than the Transportation Security Administration, we would be hard-pressed to name it.
