The System Worked

…as well as it ever has

PHILADELPHIA (CBS 3) ?The Centers for Disease Control said a passenger with tuberculosis has been detained after boarding a flight from Philadelphia to San Francisco despite being on a “do-not-board” list.

CDC officials said the passenger was detained and taken to a local hospital after a U.S. Airways flight arrived in San Francisco Saturday night.

The unidentified male passenger was apparently placed on a do-not-board list submitted to the TSA and CDC on January 8, 2010.

So the guy just casually sauntered in and hopped on the plane; there must not have been anything suspicious about him

Investigators are trying to determine how the noticeably ill man made it through security checkpoints and onto the flight.

He probably bribed his way with Twinkies.

Yeah, let’s give them more money and let them enact more restrictions on us.

    Well, there’s another way for terrorists to sneak onto flights.

    I’ve got a nice long flight coming up at the end of the month; I’m thrilled.

    I don’t think the lists are working. How about day-glo chartreuse vests?
