    Sounds like someone eventually got that ultimate patdown that gets him/her thinking twice about TSA ...

    I've been trying to comment at this thing for 10 minutes. The Denver Post seems to have a crummy set-up. The registration page just won't load. I keep trying and trying and trying. Can't even read the comments.

    I can only think (hope) their server's being crashed by people trying to comment.

    I'm having the same issue.

    However, I wanted to point out that Luckutt welcomes whole body scanners with "open arms". It's clear these "pat downs" encourage one thing, which is what many of us have said all along: compliance.

    I'm sorry, but if an area director for DEN has said that images previously described as a "chalk outline" are so graphic that new software should alleviate those concerns, I'm just not buying what TSA has for sale today.

    I was successful although it took a while.

    OK, so I can't get on now: "Too many connections"

    I couldn't even view the comments so yes I think the post is getting inundated right now which I view as positive.

    This Luckutt woman was obviously clueless. I can't say I'm surprised, given how many clueless people I've locked horns with over this in the past two years.

    (And what were we just discussing about reporters in another thread . . . ?)

    Indeed, she was clueless, and then she got a taste of what all of us have been talking about.

    Remember: TSA is funny until TSA happens to you. These 2 pieces are in the exact same vein.

    One grope at a time! as Mike likes to say.

    I feigned surprise in the comment I kept trying to post, but until they get their server in order, my feint will have to wait.

    Like the article title earlier this year read, "It's No Big Deal Until It Happens to You"

    Looks like we won yet another convert, one grope at a time.

    Ha. TSA perverts come in contact with your privates through your clothing in ways only your doctor or S/O do. To this day I refuse to walk through any whole body imaging system. Big sis won't do them then why should I?
