According to Garrison Courteney, a spokesman for the department of homeland security, "When someone is put on a no-fly list there's a lot of security and decision-making to do with that. It's not done casually. People are put on there because they are a threat to airline safety." Well, that explains how Senator Kenedy and Congressmen Lewis are on the list. And now Cat Stevens. British Foreighn Secretary Straw criticizes the action. Ted Kenedy now has to carry a letter from Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge certifying he is not a terrorist. How can we say that we are more secure when the administration claims to be going over every name, and yet -- they bounced Ted from boarding, but allowed Mr Islam (Cat Stevens) to board? This doesn't make me feel safe, nor safer. This makes me feel like there's a chimp in charge somewhere. Thank god those little red buttons were removed from the Oval Office.
