Long airport security line

Take a closer look at the number on this strip! That’s right, it’s #1000! It took a little while but we are there! Of course this means we have drawn way more than that since the 2-liners and the single panel comics are numbered separately. And you may have just noticed, I am using the term “we” rather loosely since most of the drawing work falls on my brother. Still I feel this might be a milestone to celebrate, I am opening a beer as I am writing this (keep in mind we write most blogs the night before we post them – I have not taken to day-drinking quite yet).

I was kind of hoping for this to be a “funny” strip instead of being about the TSA, haha! Some of you might have seen my rant about the TSA on social media last week. Well, this is the result. As so many times in the past, my adventures end up getting processed in cartoon form as soon as I am able to laugh about the situation or see the irony. What I really like about this strip is how Stefan captured the TSA officer! Look closer next time you fly, and I bet you will see this exact guy in front of you all the way down to the blue gloves! 😉

    I would like to add that I’m also very happy about the fact that we’ve now reached strip number 1000. 13 years ago, when I started to save our first strips, back then still in the MIX file format of Microsoft Photo Draw, I had to come up with a file numbering system. I opted for four digits, so all the files are named e.g. cw0001.jpg etc. Through the years,whenever I saved a new file, an inner voice nagged at me for being too ambitious. But now I feel vindicated! Yay!

    Of course that means, if we keep up this tempo, I’ll have to come up with a new file numbering system in 117 years.

    Yay congrats. Here’s to another 117+ years of our favourite Avian Pilot

    Another 117 years would be Great!!!
    However I am afraid that the TSA lines by that time will have grown so long that they actually will have killed aviation.
    In Amsterdam they want you to check in 4 hours in advance.
    In Brussels they want that everybody entering the departures hall is checked completely.
    If that would become true the whole queu would move to outside.
    I don’t have the solution but this way we are going to kill ourselves.

    It’s sad but that’s where ben Laden and the likes score a giant victory against all of us
    The worst in that story is that all these “security” hassle never catched a single terrorist, nor will prevent the next attempt. They will just bomb another place : trains, concerts, whatever. It is not possible to secure every place, so “security” the TSA way can only fail

    Just this week, it was announced that Chicago’s O’Hare was getting another 58 security people almost immediately and more to come, to work TSA Screenings. The news story said that people were being told to arrive at least 3 hours early. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tsa-apologizes-delays-promises-hundreds-new-staffers-chicago-o-hare-n575701
