Violent Like Me?
It's Mr. Mischief with a trick up his sleeve
Crawl up on you like Christopher Reeves
I can't describe the vibe I get
When I drive by 6 people
And 5 I hit

Pat Martin's gets up in the grille of airport security...
via Nealenews
Pat Martin says he's "getting fed up" with the screening procedures that have prompted frustrating ticket-counter delays with Air Canada on two occasions. "I can assure you I'm not a security risk, but I am about to get violent if I get treated this way again," he said in an interview.

"I don't know who's getting through, but people like me are getting stopped."

Hmmm, you mean people with a tendency towards solving problems with violence are getting stopped by security?

Keep up the good work, boy-os. Let's see if we can get him on the "no-fly" list.
Work real hard to make a dime
If you got beef
You're problem not mine
Leave all that b.s. outside
--M. J. Blige

Pat Martin wouldn't want some preferential treatment by airport security, now would he? That would be rather elitist and not very social democratic of him.

He should be subject to the same procedures as everyone else. I'm sorry he finds national security so personally demanding.

As you pointed out, I'm glad security stopped someone who admits "he's about to get violent".

Heh. I loved Martin's line "People like me are getting stopped". People like me?

He's a really special case, that one.
