These kind of stories pop-up regularly.

An over-empowered TSA agent having a bad day decides to take it out on the someone.

That someone, in this case, is a wheelchair-bound 96-year old.

Check out the video and you decide the threat level posed by the passenger.

There's a lot that could be said about a loaded Brit traveling with a "blow-up doll" to Ibiza on a budget flight.

Still, that doesn't mean that anything else should be said...

The existence of an "air rage watch list" that details threatening passengers is coming to light.

It seems TSA has been building the database for a while now, an potentially thousands of travelers are on it.

The TSA- AKA Big Brother- at its finest...

Check out this babe's mugshot. She looks like someone who might attack an air marshal and overturn a drink cart during a psychotic episode.

If you travel as much as I do, you have likely seen passengers increasingly traveling with their 'comfort animals'.

In the vast majority of cases it is a freakin' sham.

Except for blind folks and disabled vets, no one should be able to bring their dog- or any other non-human "pet"- anywhere near to an airport.

On a Frontier flight last month, one of those sandal-clad, yoga-pants wearing types who believes the world owes them everything was prancing through the ticketing area with her "comfort" dog. At the checkpoint it took 5 minutes to get "Rover" to pass through the screening machine.

The wack owner thought it was soooooo cute. Everyone else was angry at being delayed.

Then, in the concourse, the dog pissed right in front of a restaurant, five feet from where a family had been enjoying their meal. If any human had done what the mongrel did, they would have been shipped off to Guantanamo: no questions asked.

Instead the Berkleyesque-owner giggled and continued on to the gate: oblivious to any personal responsibility.

I am getting sick and tired of these dog owners who believe that merely possessing a pet gives them the right to take their mongrels anywhere. Trust me, a vast majority of the population thinks so, too.

Memo to you self-absorbed losers: your dogs are not humans. Read a Biology textbook...

Dogs are filthy creatures that belong in your house or on a leash in your yard. Not near to where us humans eat, walk, sleep, etc.

Thankfully, Delta and United are working hard to curb this abuse.

For those of you who have never had to experience a trip to involving New York's JFK Airport, consider yourselves blessed.

It embodies all the worst things about modern air travel in the U.S.: indifference, stress, confusion, and filth.

The first week of the New Year is a wonderful example of why this airport is always rated one of the worst anywhere.
