Nope,.........I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling,
do you?

So, to ensure we Americans never, ever offend anyone, particularly fanatics
who still believe toilet paper is a sin and are intent on killing us,
airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They
must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline
pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents with proper ID who
are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with
metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning former Governors.
