Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Over 1400 TSA badges, uniforms, stolen since 2003.

Oh, great! Just great! How in hell can we expect any security at airports? This is just the stupidest shit ever. --pseudolus
More than 1,400 identification badges and uniform items have been reported lost or stolen from Transportation Security Administration employees since 2003, according to documents obtained by a San Antonio television station. WOAI-TV received the documents under the Freedom of Information Act.
Los Angeles had the most ID badges missing with 120. Chicago O’Hare followed with 115. D-FW was first in Texas with 42.
Saul Wilen, a San Antonio-based terrorism prevention consultant, called the issue a very serious problem.
“If you have a badge and a uniform, you are invincible in terms of the system,” he said. “Not only can you get in and get around, you can get known and become a regular that becomes more and more recognized, so the next time you are less liable to have to go through the system’s security, and the next time even less.”
In a statement, the TSA denied that stolen badges could lead to security breaches.
What would be the appropriate theme music for this soap opera? How about “Sad but true” or “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”?
