As for going through LAX, the dozen times I have flown down through there I have had no problems going in or out. Declare it at departure, pick it up at arrival. Done deal.

God gets blamed for a lot of things now days, they ask “why would He let this happen?, Why doesn’t He stop it? I really don’t know, but I wonder if He wants to ask us the same questions. All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing
