Air evac issues: Big surprise


I didn't read the article in the Wall Street Journal this morning, but I hear from someone who did that the story about the air evacuation of Hurricane Katrina victims was a bit of a mess. She said, "It seems that the flights were delayed because TSA insisted that an air marshal be on each and every evacuation flight and that each passenger be manually screened because the x-ray machines were broken."

I was going to add something here, but really, what's there to say?
