    aol.co.uk: Jeremy Clarkson claims 'a bit of racism' could ease airport queues

    Perhaps not the politically correct thing to say...nor is The Sun the #1 place for news...

    As if the bad guys have a specific look. Even if they all would belong to a certain ethnic group most travellers belonging to that group would still be regular travellers.

    The solution is to treat all travellers as genuine until you have reason to believe otherwise.

    But certainly something that's easy to say for him as he's white and well-known at least in the UK.

    This isn't even the most outlandish statement that Clarkson has ever made -- by far -- so it's not unexpected.

    And he's probably just mad that Top Gear was preempted by the Olympics -- as are all gearheads everywhere, myself included. :)
