Main Question or Discussion Point

1. Babies are terrorists; thus they should not be allowed on planes.
:rofl: I think 1 and 3 might be closely related. Babies are definitely bioterrorists, constantly spreading nasty germs everywhere they go!
I think somone is taking this advice seriously!

Baby is sent through X-ray machine at LAX

A woman going through security at Los Angeles International Airport put her month-old grandson into a plastic bin intended for carry-on items and slid it into an X-ray machine.

The early Saturday accident — bizarre but not unprecedented — caught airport workers by surprise, even though the security line was not busy at the time, officials said.

...The rare incident drew attention to whether officials are staffing often-busy security checkpoints enough to prevent such an accident.

..."The screeners are still reporting that they're being pushed," said Brian Sullivan, a retired Federal Aviation Administration security agent. "If a baby can get through, what the hell else can get through?"

They're trying to blame the lack of security staff for this? Sounds more like an absent-minded grandmother! I've seen this story (or versions of it) on several sites already tonight. I'm wondering why it's being reported as such a big deal. Stupid, sure, but news?

They should have a sign posted; the grandmother can't really be expected to know about x-rays.
