    I wonder if the TSA response posted on the TSA Blog was an original work by Bob or if someone else wrote it and they just posted it with his name.?

    That posting was incredibly immature sounding and really puts a bad light on that operation as if it could really get any worse. I think most companies with a responsible PR department would fire anyone that wrote something that poorly although I know TSA won't hold anyone accountable. That's not how TSA rolls.

    I was hoping Rugape would comment on this to get his inside take on whats going on. I wouldn't doubt that TSA has instructed its employees to not discuss this topic.

    Regarding "you know, things that go BOOM" -- remember their Talk-Like-a-Pirate tweets?

    Nothing should surprise us from these people.

    Millions of people would be just fine with that. Some of them -- journalists, no less -- have told me so in writing.

    Wow, you guys. I leave for ONE day and all (expletive deleted) breaks loose! :D This is SO fantastic!

    I'm still not flying and so was doing the 14 hour drive yesterday and missed the whole thing as it unfolded!!

    Just saw the lame post up on the TSA blog.

    Am now trying to decide how best to help out.

    This is major. Everyone please go over and read this e-mail.

    But Jon -- you removed all identifying info in the screen-shot. Is there anything you can tell us about this to make it more credible for the inevitable naysayers? People will say that not a reporter but a friend of yours sent you that email, that it's a hoax, etc. Can you at least tell us the network/publication/something?

    Sadly, I think it's an original work by Boob.

    Remember he thinks he's "hip" and cool.

    It's painfully obvious to everyone else that he isn't.

    That will teach you to leave us unattended. :)

    That's what I'm asking, but since he blacked out the name he obviously doesn't want to reveal that. So I thought he might at least be able to tell us more than "a South Florida reporter."

    I would love to post this at TSA News but I need something more.

    Glad he thinks so, that makes one anyhow.

    Perhaps a regular interview, questions and responses.
