Re: Bill Hall column (TNT, 12-11).

Sorry about your disappointment that no one wanted to search your body at the airport. I have the perfect solution for us and all saggy old men: Get a knee replacement as I did about a year ago. They’ll want you every time.

Since I got mine, I’ve been pawed over in Paris twice, Barcelona, Dallas twice, New York City twice and Seattle three times! Seemed like they wanted to get that “gag reflex” (or is it reflux?) experience over with asap.

So I’m thinking of creating a rating system for security inspectors. Instead of stars I’ll use wrinkles and reverse the order: Five wrinkles, they did a really shabby job. Then progressively up to one wrinkle which means that I wouldn’t mind going back through it again! Care to join me?
