    People stand on the tarmac at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood  International Airport  after a lone shooter opened fire inside the terminal

    People stand on the tarmac at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport after a lone shooter opened fire inside the terminal

     A random weekend thought. Let’s see if I got this right:

    Ex-Philadelphia mayoral candidate and all-around sane grownup Sam Katz gets pulled off a plane because he had personal-use marijuana in his checked baggage (he was going to Florida for a fishing trip)…but a nutcase gets a plane ride to Florida with a 9 mm gun and ammo in his checked baggage.

    Priorities, American style.
