Make 'em put their money where their mouth is

For all the blather out of Washington, the Prez did come up with a halfway good idea, asking Heimatsicherheitsdienst Kommandant Tom Ridge if he'd let his (Ridge's) kid fly on a plane. Good as far as it goes, but not good enough.

Perhaps Ridge and the rest of the TSA autocrats should be required to fly in those planes that are oh-so-safe. Unarmed, of course, since they don't seem to believe in arming pilots. Sort of a reversal on the idea of randomly staffing planes with air marshals.

Oh, and they should be "randomly selected" for closer screening prior to boarding. Flying coach, of course, goes without saying. What's sauce for the goose.....
