    A 50-year-old man who said he felt that airport screeners were "harassing" him stripped naked at Portland International Airport, police in Oregon said.
    Police charged John E. Brennan with disorderly conduct and indecent exposure after he disrobed while going through the security screening area at the airport Tuesday evening.
    "When interviewed about his actions, Mr. Brennan stated he fly's (sic) a lot and had disrobed as a form of protest against TSA screeners who he felt were harassing him," a police incident report said.

    I've spent all morning posting as many comments as I can in the blabbosphere lauding this guy. (And deliberately insulting the sheeple. We are way, way past the point of showing sympathy to the masses of morons.)

    Just found out that this man, this hero, John Brennan, is a close friend of a friend of mine in Tucson. He just sent me a couple of emails saying bravo and he's not surprised as John is gutsy.

    This comment is exactly what is wrong with people:

    They think that because one can "choose" to fly or not (nevermind the stupidity of that argument on its face), that they have freedom of choice.

    Morons.

    Shouldn't that be the Anglo-Irish Times?

    Unlike the US, a portion of their island still under British rule, as I recall...

    "Island" vs. "continent," but point taken.
