It turns out airlines can profile after all. Not polar explorers returning home after a seven hour holiday, of course - that'd be stupid. No, it's a far more sinister pattern of behavior they're looking for.

Hey - I don't know about you guys, but I'm feeling alientated. Not to say appalled, agitated and angry. It's taking all my self-control not to strap explosives to myself and blow up a bus.

Actually, I am kind of teed off. You simply can't make a case for this kind of profiling without also making the case for anti-terrorist profiling, yet such is the intellectual death spiral of our culture that we'll treat enemy combatants attempting to destroy an airliner full of people better than Joe Bloke jetting home.
