On the other side of the country, CNN is reporting that a woman traveling through LAX placed her one-month old baby into one of those plastic airport bins, and put it through the x-ray machine at the security checkpoint.
The woman and child were rushed to a local hospital, where x-rays showed the baby to be fine. The TSA security agent said, "I could have told you that."
In the mother's defense, she didn’t speak or read English. And doesn’t get out much.
Through a translator, the woman said, “I could see my baby’s bones! It was just like Dia de los Muertos!”
When asked for comment, Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode said, “X-ray-o your baby-o back home-o—no, wait I didn’t mean to say ‘homo’—I think that means something different in English and Spanish. DAMN IT! You know this would have never happened if we had a wall to keep these people out. Half of ‘em look like Muslims anyway.”
