    It's not about a "bruised ego," stupid-(expletive deleted) newspapers. Aaargh.

    Did he leave the belt in his luggage, or did the TSA make him remove it?

    I did a post at TSA News at around the same time. It'll take a few minutes to show up.

    God, this story pisses me off. The imbeciles who think it's funny . . . . They should be flogged.
     
  5. Shatner also makes a good point about loose fitting clothing. How many people are singled out for humiliation because they want to be comfortable on a long flight? How asinine.

    They're also singled out for tight-fighting clothing; witness the guy who posted his story Nightmare at O'Hare.

    It has nothing to do with clothing. It has to do with the whims of these thugs.

  7. Oh yeah, maybe his point about loose fitting clothes was because his pants fell down.

    In an apparent attempt to make light of the fact that an 81-year-old man was forced to stand in public with his pants around his ankles, the Toronto Sun reported that actor William Shatner was chosen for a “random” search at LAX (Los Angeles).
    Apparently the newspaper thinks it’s amusing that Shatner “was left nursing a bruised ego.”
    Yeah, because it’s so amusing when a government agency demand that you be stripped, groped, and publicly humiliated. Hardy-har-har, I laugh about it all the time!
    Plenty of other celebrities have also been singled out by the TSA; there are more all the time. And still more. And more. Apparently, this shows that they’re “just like you and me.” Or maybe the blue-shirted wonders just want to poke and prod the famous.
    Since I’ve spent the past few years defending anyone and everyone, no matter their social status, from TSA abuse, I will also defend William Shatner.
    It’s not funny to watch someone, including a famous someone, have to stand half-naked in public. And anyone who thinks it is might want to delve into a little history — perhaps of 1930s Germany — and psychotherapy.

    Oh, god, please go over to TSA News, where Kevin Nakao, the author of the "Hug a TSA agent" dreck, has just commented.
