    Our ally in the struggle Chris Elliott has started a new blog, called TSA News. I'm contributing to it. It only just launched. Please bookmark it and contribute comments as often as you can. Chris has taken major heat from TSA apologists and naysayers over at his longtime travel site, Elliott Blog, where he's been raising awareness of TSA abuses for a while (also in his columns for the Washington Post, National Geographic, etc.). He decided to start a new blog where he can concentrate exclusively on the TSA. I will cross-post between TUG and there, meaning I'll link to TUG entries so both places will get hits.

    Does he want clips of news that we find or would he like original pieces? Both?

    He scans the TSA news every day just like the rest of us, plus he's privy to press releases from the beast itself. I think the best bet is always to post here first. Then, if he or I or another writer there wants to post the same story, we can link back to TUG.

    Sounds good.

    This is a great idea -- discussion is fun but creates a lot of noise that can distract from the important points. This should help draw attention to key news items and might end up being the best counterpoint to Propaganda Village.

    That's kind of what I tried to so with the original www.thousandsstandingaround.org (not what's there now) but the forum approach I used just wasn't the right way to go about it.

    Thanks Lisa, this is great news.

    I saw the URL a few days ago in a Google search and thought it was related to BB and kept going. I was recently invited to post at Stop TSA Scanners and have made a couple of post so having a network of these sites should help expand the reach.

    I'll put this at the top of my bookmarks and will drop some things off there as well.

    We can always use more. This reminds me - my s.o. and a colleague of his put together a site last year when all of this started called "I Will Opt Out". It's been pretty quiet since last Nov., but he can revive it. The original idea for the site was to document the abuses that were going on, help rally opposition, and to encourage people to opt out.

    He's been lurking on this site as well - he's jdp23 (he told me it was okay that I out him). :)

    That was also my initial reaction when I saw the thread title here. :D "Oh, great, AGITPROP/TSA has an official home."
