Washington Is Not Like the Rest of Us

RC2 tunes in for news while putting up the lunch dishes. "BIG changes at Reagan National" teases the newsreader. She's thinking onerous new security measures, closing or re-designing part of the airport, it's being closed to the public, something "BIG."

The change is Congress is considering cutting the amount of time you have to sit in your seat upon leaving or approaching the airport from 30 minutes down to 15.

Even better, the Congressman who is proposing this BIG change is doing it on the ground that he is against foolish and meddlesome rules. With 2 air marshals on each flight, he reasons, the 30 minute rule is unnecesary.

No comment.
