I write this at my own peril. I plan on flying out to Boston in August to visit my family.

The Transportation Security Agency has put CNN reporter Drew Griffin on the terrorist watch list. Why him and not, say, the more sinister sounding Wolf Blitzer? Well, Blitzer hasn’t been filing stories about the lack of air marshals on airline flights.
