Recent Innovations In The Public Safety.  
I don't know about you, but I certainly feel safer knowing that I live in a country in which one now can carry a loaded and concealed .50 caliber semiautomatic pistol into a national park. My sense of personal security is further enhanced by my knowing that one may not carry a container of Cheez Whiz brand process cheese food onto a domestic flight originating from San Francisco International Airport.

Of course, the person whose Cheez Whiz brand process cheese food was confiscated earlier today at SFO is a Major in the National Guard and no doubt the Transportation Security Administration likes to keep its eyes on people like her. She could probably kill a man with that stuff. I shudder to think of the havoc she could wreak with a mesh bag full of those mini-Babybel cheeses.

I certainly feel safer knowing that the TSA's profiles of Threats To America include officers with 20 years of military service - including enlistments in the Marines, the Army and now the Guard - and their condiments. And I hope I never run into someone like that at Yosemite.

Perhaps the TSA agent also had some asshole tag their car for towing on the South Side of Pittsburgh. That's enough to turn anyone against any condiment.
