    Short article but disgusting. As I posted in my comment there, just another blatant TSA power-grab.

    Go on over. Give 'em (expletive deleted).

    The site pre-moderates comments but hopefully mine will get through.

    Oh, and just for the record, here's the comment I posted (still awaiting moderation as of 10:56AM CST):

    Yeah, this happened to another woman, too. Can't remember who or where, but it's in the Master List.

    the writer of the article does not mention what happened, but it was undoubtedly a full frontal in the area.
    So ATR is making more fans of the TSA....Those idiots are making our case for us....
     
  5. My mother-in-law is coming for Christmas through a scanner airport, and she's a holiday-sweater wearin' fool. Will have to warn her of this idiocy.

    That depends. Is she on your side?

  7. Well, that's a good point. She is, I think, in spirit, but I suspect she'll go through the scanner. Last time we discussed it we were both at non-scanner airports.

    I was wondering if she's sympathetic to the cause in general. Meaning I hope she's not one of those people who ridicules our concerns about our civil liberties and bodies being violated.
     
  9. Sympathetic to the cause, but likes to play by the rules.

    At a certain point it gets hard to play by the rules - especially when the rules are secret and they keep changing.

    P.S. I think your sig file is shiny, but now I'm singing the song. A marathon may even be in order sometime during the long weekend. ;)
