It’s a sad day when a family has to miss a flight simply because their 2 year old kid appears on thelist.
I can’t imagine the conversation being something like this.
Airport TSA employee: Excuse me ma’am, but our database shows that little Johnny here is on the no-fly list. Apparently, he’s been involved with money laundering since 9 months old.
Johnny’s Mom: Oh no! But we’re going to miss our flight to [insert some dumb amusement park in another state]. We got to get on!
TSA: I’m sorry ma’am. But we have to search him for weapons. Can you please remove his diaper.
Personally, the only “bomb” I think they would discover would be a result of too much broccoli. While it would certainly be upsetting, it’s hardly worth making the family miss the flight. Why aren’t TSA employees reasonable enough to realize that the baby isn’t going to hijack the plane? And why does the no-flynames? Are we to believe their are 100,000 terrorists in the country? Jeez, why bother then. Or are people just being randomly placed on it? Seems to defeat the purpose of the list if so many people are on it.
