Today, Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta announced his resignation as of July 7, 2006. All I have to say is good riddance, Mr Mineta. This holdover from the Clinton administration was responsible for perhaps the most absurd and dangerous policy instituted after September 11, 2001: random passenger searches in airports. Yes, that's right. Everytime an 80 year old Jewish woman in a wheelchair gets searched at Logan Airport, it's Norman Mineta's fault. But now he's gone! Shall we have a parade?
