Coincidence? Hmm....

I just read (on Yahoo! News) that Bush is asking for a review of the 'no-fly' list, and will seek to cut the list in half... This comes the day after Boston Legal had a case on the show regarding the stupidity behind how the list works (or, more correctly, DOESN'T work). As Alan Shore put it (paraphrasing), "I can store 20,000 songs on a device that fits in the palm of my hand, and yet the TSA cannot find a way for the no-fly list to check birthdates and addresses?" Absurd. To make his point, Shore asked anyone named Denny Crane to stand. He, of course, had loaded the courtroom with men, women and children whose name was Denny Crane (or various spellings thereof) who could not fly because of the list... I wonder if Denny Crane really WAS on the list.. Now, THAT would be funny! :-)

Coincidence that Bush decided to do this the day after the whole 'no-fly' issue was shown for the crazy system it is? As Shan said, Bush probably saw the episode, picked up the phone and said, "Is this true? is this how the no-fly list works?"

I would guess the White House will deny any connection whatsoever...but ya gotta wonder...
