    But it was said that the Orlando FSD did apologize. I agree that whatever was said was probably not an apology.

    What in the world is TSA trying to hide? That's what I'd like to know.

    Let me see if I understand this:

    TSA is accused of sifting through, dumping, and then laughing about it, a deceased relative's ashes on the floor. :mad:
    TSA denies (as to be expected) that it happened at all. Of course, no video evidence is available. I know I'm shocked. :rolleyes:
    And so in response, TSA posts a blog post reminding good citizens how they should pack cremains. :confused:

    As always, ad infinitum, it is the passenger who is at fault, having inconvenienced the screeners, lied about it, and then not known the proper thing to do in the first place.

    It is becoming more and more obvious that the entire organization is nothing but psychopaths.

    We've got a new one. Not Bloghdad Bob. And all she did was repeat supposed TSA "policy" from the official website. No mention of this incident, no mention of the incompetence and abusiveness of TSA employees. Of course.

    On Blogger since June 2012.

    More propagandists is the best way to handle any adverse situation, no?

    I bet I know <*waving right arm frantically in the air*> They are trying to cover up the fact that they committed a gross violation of the health code by fondling grandpa's ashes.

    Interesting as she's not on the "Meet our Bloggers" listing of bloggers. They must have had to scurry around to find someone who had not already left for the weekend willing to put their name on a piece of trash.

    Given the sheer numbers of people willing to accept a paycheck from the TSA for sniffing Granny's panties, it wouldn't be hard to find several thousand of them willing to post crap like that simply so they'd have a little reassurance of continuing to collect a paycheck.

    Look what happens to every news article that mentions the TSA union issues - it's overrun with astroturfers trying to say they don't work for the TSA, but support them. Horsepuckey.

    Now at Government Security News. Comment I left; let's see if it's allowed to post:

    Rode hard put up wet, yet still a lying gov't dolt without a soul...How long til someone gets pissed for the BS TSA pulls and dispatches said idiot publicly for all to see... like shooting a coyote and hanging the pelt on the fence to tell the other coyotes they'd best leave.

    It's been my personal experience that coyotes are generally smarter than TSA employees.

    This is true, but when they see the pelt of another on the post they take the hint and high tail it out of that area and not return. Then again TSA couldn't buy a clue to save their life.

    I wouldn't bet on it. We've seen how they treat the cremains of passengers' relatives.

    My bet would be that a smurfchen's first reaction would be to see if there was anything to steal...

    TSA couldn't catch a clue if you doused them with clue musk and dumped them in a field of horny clues during clue mating season.

    Okay...why were the words "squeal like a pig" the first things to come to mind when I read this?

    TSA can go "...back the way [it] came!"...?

    Because you are sick, twisted and depraved. I like that in a fellow traveler.

    I finally watched "V for Vendetta." It took a long time, and a lot, for the people to finally rise up.

    (Fab movie, by the way.)

    The book was better. ;)

    Oh, I believe it. The book is always better. There's much more nuance, depth, complexity in a book than can ever be captured in a movie, much as I love movies. I will say that certain ones do very well by their forebears -- The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) being one. The Age of Innocence, except for the miscast Michelle Pfeiffer, being another.
