Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.

This was hilarious. As a single Pakistani male who goes through immense amounts of shit at any immigration counter in the world, I have to admit that of great concern to me is the idea of not being able to go to the loo in the last hour of a flight. I suspect airlines will find their cleaning supplies and/or free diaper expenses rapidly skyrocketing.

GayProf, of course you're not worried about body scans. You're the sexiest blogger on the internet! However, as a (sexy) trans person, I'm planning on taking up boat travel to and from europe. This body scan thing is not cool.

GayProf: Do you really want me to expound on vegetable garden options for MFT? At the very least, a nice rhubarb patch is a no-brainer.

I don't think we can rest in peace unless it's cavity searches for all. Sadly, I must participate in security theater this morning.

Orange alert? The guy was on a terrorist watch list, paid cash for a one-way ticket and had zero luggage. But everyone's shoes were checked, right? The lamity makes the mind boggle.

2010-01-04T17:40:46.435-08:00

I have been wondering for some time if we had ever NOT been on orange, despite hearing occasionally that the risk has been "raised to orange." But this confirms it. And confirms the idiocy of it as well. Thanks!

GayProf: I'm so glad I wasn't the only Mean Girl to be happy about our dumb$hit would-be jihadi suffering second degree burns. Jackass apparently doesn't know how very close Dearborn is to Romulus, Michigan!

(Hope you got home safely and without too much hassle.)

LenapeGirl: Thanks for stopping by.

Pacalaga: Well, heavy drinking solves so many problems.

ROG: That bathroom rule made me nervous. What if you really need to go?

Susan: It's true -- If somebody wants to trade their life to take down a plane, they will find a way. After all, the 9/11 terrorists did it with fairly simple equipment.

This isn't to say that the government shouldn't always be looking to increase their ability to prevent such attacks. I do wish, though, that we would be a little more thoughtful rather than reactionary in our approaches.

Mel: A victory garden in this state? What could I grow other than icicles?

Susurro: I've notice how nationality has played a major role in identifying the undie bomber. But I think that we all can guess what that is about. . .

2010-01-02T03:59:22.685-08:00

Umm, is there anything worse than this: A multi city Celine Dion tour? me thinks that is the winner for threat red.

having been felt up more than once at airport security (mostly by other women; oh where for art feminism) I'm not sure being oggled on screen is that big of a difference. But I still don't like it. And I'm not sure it would have spotted something in someone's undies anyway, since it is not supposed to reveal anything there ...

besides cost, I also find myself wondering why the undies bomber is "The Nigerian" but the "shoe bomber" is not The Brit?

2010-01-01T16:22:12.682-08:00

Face it: the terrorists have won. After all, what else could they want besides creation of a paranoid police state? Though maybe they're really in the employ of the companies making the body scanners. At least it's an explanation that makes sense.

Hope the new year brings good things for you. And maybe a backyard bomb shelter and victory garden, too.

2010-01-01T15:07:28.263-08:00

I wish someone would say aloud what everyone knows: there is no way to stop every kook who wants to harm others. So no system will be perfect. And -- as so many have pointed out -- this is a classic case of always fighting the last war.

As to the body scan machines, I also don't think they will show explosives hidden in body cavities, which is likely to be the next approach. So not only will we have to fly naked, we'll have very intrusive searches.

I particularly like the point about who makes the machines, and all the profits off homeland security. Turns out we don't need to train people, we just need more machines. Maybe they could manufacture them in Detroit? I gather there is still a skilled manufacturing force there!

My sister flew from Victoria to San Francisco yesterday, and was given a very thorough search including a pat down; flying from San Francisco, it was easy. We only worry about what comes from the outside.

2009-12-31T18:06:37.821-08:00

I'm more concerned about not going to the bathroom for the last hour on international flight because of another Nigerian on that flight, who was NOT a terrorist had the runs.

Some righteous points about poor Detroit (1967, indeed) and the color-coded silliness (burnt sienna - ha!)

2009-12-31T14:58:17.523-08:00

what was the reason for all the heavy drinking BEFORE the terrorists got involved?
oh yeah, and happy new year, GayProf. May your new year be filled with green chile, and may your martini glass never run dry.
