    Agreed, simple common sense. Racial profiling of drivers and kids walking about is simply wrong. When the numbers start making it obvious, the municipality should pay, big time.

    Regarding flights and other 'sensitive areas', profiling makes sense. Reasonableness is something that can't be legislated, but in general it should create little undue burden on travelers.

    C'mon.

    Everybody knows the 911 hijackers were all Swedish grandmothers.

    Pat them down!

    Speak for yourself, I for one love having a greasy old guy try to feel me up while the whole line watches. Nothing kicks off spring break better.

    I agree about patting down grandmothers. The trouble is, as soon as we start profiling, the terrorists will use someone who doesn't fit the government's profile.
