THE MAN WHOSE SHOES WERE BOMBS: Ken Layne points out this picture, where "Richard Reid" is apparently signalling secret Popeye-brigades to eat spinach en masse and beat up whoever their particular Blutos happen to be. He looks a little better in this picture and this picture, though a little woozy. All the sedation, maybe? MSNBC is saying he's a Sri Lankan.
The MSNBC news head (who is not the divine Jeannie Ohm) just said that new security protocols will require anyone who trips an airport metal detector to take their shoes off. Yeah, that'll work. I like Jeff Jarvis's suggestion about flying naked better.
