    I plan on writing to Durr-bin, K-hurrrr-k, and Scha-koward to advise them to support this, not that I think it'll do any good.

    My only fear with regard to this is it doesn't take steps to outright prohibit the use of NoS and doesn't mandate that the pax' requests for a back-of-hand patdown be honored under penalty of criminal charges against the Clerk-Not-Agent-Not-Officer performing it. I suppose it's also possible that this could lead to a "good enough" scenario where efforts to abolish TSA lose steam because not as many people are pissed off.

    Still, I feel like it's bad idea to pass up what could be a good thing and something that could at least ruin a lot of the fun TSA has been having at the taxpayers' expense. Anything to put a choke-chain around the agency's neck and start imposing serious restrictions on what it's allowed to do can only be beneficial to the people.

    There should never be a pat down by a TSA clerk. If suspicion is developed then call an officer of the law.
