from a resident of Appalachia; where we still pretty much hold to a "leave me alone" approach to relations with governmental bodies. Combine that with an innate tendency to question authority and you can see why I don't fly anymore, nor will unless absolutely necessary. We (the family) used to travel most every month - now we go via automobile, and not as often. So, guess I'm a oddball in this august group. I don't have many stories to tell about traveling; although have a few about "security" in general, strong opinions thereof and a grave concern as to the direction in which this country is headed, and the future in which my nine year old will be living.
