Sometimes, you really can’t make this stuff up.
Over the last few weeks, dissatisfaction with TSA has been bubbling over as airport lines have reached insane lengths, causing hours-long delays. TSA says it is because they are “understaffed”. But given that they blame understaffing for everything, including the murder of Jon Snow, I’m disinclined to take that seriously. McArdle breaks down what’s really going on: they’re making security more of an ordeal because there is no cost to them in doing so.
Still … the TSA now has a response: clowns. Seriously.
