    Niagara Falls Reporter: Foolish TSA press release and Reporter’s response

    Thanks Lisa, it shows you folks at TSA really care about our abiding fondness for snow globes.

    Last time I went to the airport, good-natured TSA agents had me stand in front of a large machine called a body scanner, and told me to raise my arms in the air like I was under arrest while the machine did a virtual strip search. It is breathtaking to witness the speed at which a mere bureaucracy has undone the dignity and freedom of Americans. I love the way you’re doing the terrorists’ job for them.

    But bless you, as I stand before an airport naked-body scanner, I am glad to know I am allowed to carry snow globes - as long as they're smaller than a tennis ball.

    The Reporter even published Farbstein's contact info:
