Five colors going, going, gone?

Yes! After nearly ten years, word on the street is that the inane color scheme will be replaced. With what, no one knows. Maybe nothing. That would be fitting. By April 27, which we'll declare as a holiday if it happens.
One of the most notable changes to come: The public will no longer hear automated recordings at U.S. airports stating that the threat level is orange.
That's a relief. Since those messages mean nothing, as it's been orange out for years. Or maybe that's John Boehner's face.

Turn and cough

Conor Friedersdorf writes about security and gender at the Daily Beast. Somewhat satirical, but not completely. Anyway, the first person to send in evidence that, during a security pat down, they said "turn and cough" to the TSA guy wins, well, we don't have anything to give away, actually.
