I find this rather funny, its not like no one knows who Ted Kennedy is, and they have been trying for 3 weeks to get his name off the list, LOL only in America,

U.S. Sen. Edward M. "Ted" Kennedy said yesterday that he was stopped and questioned at airports on the East Coast five times in March because his name appeared on the government's secret "no-fly" list.

Federal air security officials said the initial error that led to scrutiny of the Massachusetts Democrat should not have happened even though they recognize that the no-fly list is imperfect. But privately they acknowledged being embarrassed that it took the senator and his staff more than three weeks to get his name removed.

Not for anything related to the No Fly list, but for giving us the verb for what's going on here.

When the "No Fly List" controvesy first broke and for the 5 minutes the media covered it before cool video of stuff blowing up started, it was obvious to me that the "Katherine Harris'ing" of the list was going to be a huge problem.

I've got a post somewhere on here about all the kids that were grounded from going home for Christmas because they had names like names of people that may have exploding shoes (read as ethnic sounding).

But now we're after the Irish?

Three words to that...

It's about time.
