    Also comes after a PR release of a new video about "RAIL-SAFE" in which Reichsminister Napolitano spews forth a line of drivel.



    This is...distressing, to say the least. I leave from CUS next month to go to Providence. Have been looking forward to this vacation since March. In no mood to have it jerked away by TSA filth. They ruin everything they touch. Nobody in TSA is ever capable of anything other than misery, damage, and malfeasance. It's the nature of their existence and they should hate themselves for it every second of their lives.

    True to form (or perhaps in a return to form), Yours Truly has done up a text piece.

    I hope Amtrak's bean counters are doing some math. They've experienced record ridership year after year since 2001 because people will pay more and endure longer trips to avoid the indignities of dealing with TSA in the airports.

    If people wake up some morning and realized that their choices are now ...
    1. Fly and be abused & raped by TSA
    2. Take a train and be abused & raped by TSA
    ... Amtrak's expanded customer base will either fly or stay home.

    Apparently TSA has set new lows for standards.

    I'm not sure I could call those "standards." Criteria, certainly - but their bar's set pretty goshdarned low.

    TSA calls it a standard. Like most other things TSA it's pretty much fubar.

    Updated the letter - this is the version I'll send to both Amtrak and APD. Usual waiver applies - use it in good health, as you will.

    TSA calls their uniformed clerks "officers," too. 'Nuff said.
