Hans Sans Pants

From AP comes the story of a 66-year-old German tourist who became so annoyed by the security at Manila's airport that he dropped his pants before walking through the X-ray machine.

Filipino authorities failed to comprehend the humor in his actions and he was detained. He spent the weekend in police custody and will now face a complaint of laciviousness. I hope Hans sees the humor in that.

While security measures are frustrating, the people to get mad at are those who make them necessary, not those who are there to protect people and property. If Hans wants to expose himself to someone let him do it in Tehran or Damascus. That would appeal to my sense of humor.
