A joke from 2001

 Or maybe it was 2002.

Waiting in line at the airport, I saw TSA checkers take an elderly lady into a separate room because she had knitting needles and wool yarn. Did they think she was going to knit an Afghan?

(Not so funny now that we've been run out of Afghanistan. Well, that's inaccurate. Our political generals led by politicians decided they can't take any additional losses. Or, the Global War on Terrorism has become bad press. Or, it was a war we could not win as long as there are Muslims, but nobody will kill enough of them to make them stop fighting. Since 1917 we don't do war well unless we fight a country whose army is just like ours. China should take that under consideration. European-style army, you are going down.)
