Muskegon Chronicle: Steve Gunn: Just say no when the TSA asks you to 'chat' I came face-to-face with Big Brother the other day, and it was a frightening experience.He actually presented himself in the deceptive form of a young, attractive female officer, working for the Transportation Security Administration at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. At first she simply seemed chatty and friendly. She looked at my airline boarding pass and noted that I was coming from Denver. Then she mentioned that I was headed from Detroit to Grand Rapids. "That's a pretty short flight," she said."Talk to my travel agent," I grumbled.At that point she asked me what my business would be in Grand Rapids. "I'm headed home," I replied. Then she wanted to know where home was. That's when the mental alarms went off and I realized I was being interrogated by Big Brother in drag....I then told her I am an American citizen, traveling within my own country, and I wasn't breaking any laws. That's all the federal government needed to know, and I wasn't going to share any more.Not because I had anything to hide. It was because we live in a free country where innocent people are supposedly protected from unwarranted government intrusion and harassment. At that point the agent yelled out, "We have another refusal." One of my bags was seized and I was momentarily detained and given a hand-swab, which I believe was to test for residue from bomb-making materials.... I'm glad we quit flying. I'd really lose it with these damned dim-witted Nazis.
