Fire the moron and his boss named Janet.

The chaos at Terminal 7 was caused by screener Alija Abdul Majed, who had manned Lane No. 1 during the morning shift with no idea his metal detector had no juice, sources said.

Amazingly, he failed to realize that alert lights never flashed once as streams of passengers filed through the dead detector, the sources said.

Majed was so clueless that he couldn’t even tell police how long the machine had been shut off or how it happened, the sources said.

“It was simply an unplugged machine — the TSA doing its best,” another source said.

Higher-ups at the Transportation Security Administration finally discovered the security boondoggle at 9:44 a.m. — leaving the Port Authority with no choice but to call for a complete evacuation of the international terminal that is home to British Airways, Cathay Pacific, United Airlines and others.

The extraordinary measure meant that two jumbo jets — including a San Francisco-bound United flight — had to return to the gate so passengers could be rescreened at a metal detector that was actually turned on.

The TSA would not confirm or deny that its detector had been unplugged, releasing a statement saying only that a metal detector suffered a “malfunction.”

Eight to 10 flights were delayed as a result of the power-cord bungle, sources said.

Let’s be fair, what about the school that has a sunscreen policy (are kid’s into drinking the stuff?) that sent kids to the hospital with bad sunburns?

Children in all states except for California are not allowed to apply or bring the product to school, ABC News reports, partially because it is considered a medication.

The Tacoma mom said that the burns were particularly infuriating because the teachers didn’t make an exception for her daughter Zoe, who they know has a form of albinism, which makes her particularly susceptible to the sun’s rays.

Or how burns early in life can set the stage for nasty skin cancer?  Why are these adults on the taxpayer dole?
