Is coming nearer on the path.

CNN reports:

NEWARK, New Jersey (AP) -- A security screener at Newark Liberty International Airport failed to spot a butcher knife in a passenger's pocketbook and was removed from the post for retraining, officials said.

Two questions:

1. When did they start calling the airport voted most likely to be the closest to Moon's childhood home Newark Liberty?

2. Am I the only one who finds the "removed . . . for retraining" language a bit Orwellian?
