    I've tried to tell my husband, who still flies, that he shouldn't carry pills in unmarked bottles, for exactly the reasons displayed in this account. But, of course, he ignores me. "What's the big deal? I've been carrying pills like this [all mixed up in one bottle] for years. No one's ever stopped me."

    Ah, well.

    All it will take is for one of the blue-shirted morons to decide that he looks like a tewworist, and then he will finally be convinced. Not that I hope it ever happens to him, bless his naive little heart!

    Not to worry: One grope (or one victim) at a time. Eventually it will happen, if not to him then to many like him.

    Good grief, quite a story. Some excerpts, bolding mine -- and I will also note for the benefit of those who think private security will solve everything, the people who messed with him were private contractors:
    Gee, where have I heard that before? Sure hope Rugape doesn't wander over here. His pretty little moralizing head might explode over the many times he'll have to repeat, "I don't know the details. This is only his side of the story. I wasn't there at the time," blah blah blah.

    Redundant. They're TSA employees. 'Nuff said.
