I 've been overhearing a lot of people saying how much they hate our government. You know, it's easy to do when you read an article like this one: Student charged in airline box cutter scare and realize that the ineptitude of the security forces is being covered up by a serious effort to prosecute the student involved as if he were a criminal.

The real question isn't whether you prosecute this young man for a lack of judgment. It's why did it take more than a month to discover the items palnted aboard planes, and would they have evedr been discovered if he hadn't called attention to them.
