    Can any editing be done to articles posted on TSA News Blog. Check second paragraph of current story.

    Okay, just saw it. Thanks. I'd only re-read that thing umpteen times -- and so has another editor!

    When it comes to complaints about how they're being mistreated or misunderstood by members of the public, I see a distinct parallel between TSA employees and members of NAMBLA.

    And I have the same amount of sympathy for both of those groups.

    Actually, I have more sympathy for NAMBLA. Not much more, but more nonetheless.

    Well, NAMBLA members don't insist on being paid for what they do.

    These A.S.S. are such drama queens.

    Is it any wonder things go down at the checkpoint the way they do now that we know this?

    Thanks, I'll be performing here all week, be sure to tip your waitress. :D

    A few years ago our friend said this:
    Yup, the checkpoint is soooo dangerous, but screeners participate in Take Your Kid To Work Day. :rolleyes:

    Another point it seems to me is that if flying is so dangerous we have to be groping people, why are they allowing children to do their job of checking travelers? When I was checking in for my flight in State College, PA Thursday morning, I presented my ID and boarding pass to a young man I would guess was about eight years old. You can see him with the "magic flashlight" in the photo below.

    They also had children manning the conveyor belt that lead into the X-ray and on the other side of the X-ray and metal detector. Look closely at the photo below.

    Children? Really?!

    If I were so unfortunate as to be a TSA employee, I'd be too embarrassed to take my child to work and watch me grope strangers for money.
