Just as shopkeepers can keep their windows safe from errant bricks by paying off mobsters, travelers can now avoid being seen naked or having their genitals fondled by petty tyrants by paying protection money to the TSA:
Those who wish to avoid body scanners and pat-downs at airports can pay $100 to opt into a Transportation Security Administration expedited security screening program.
Those who cough up the cash are also excused from taking off their shoes, belts, and jackets and are even allowed to bring liquids in their carry-on bags.
Nearly 100,000 American Airlines passengers have already signed up.
No sense wondering how many of them are named Mohammad. I doubt Homeland Security collects that kind of information.
