Think I could get a job as a TS"O"?

    I think it would be interesting to see exactly what kind of indoctrination a smurf is given to make him or her feel like molesting the country is for the greater good. I'd also love to study the SOP, and of course, would get great satisfaction out of proving that TSA hiring practices are so lax that they hired one of their biggest protestors.

    ...plus, blue is my color. ;)

    Documentary, anyone?

    Sadly I don't think I have the time. It would be something like a 90% pay cut from running my company. ;) But it would be interesting...

    Where's Michael Moore when you need him?

    No kidding. He even already looks like one of them, minus the blue shirt.

    Nope, he's not fat enough. :D

    But he's certainly sloppy enough.

    Now that you mention it, it does strike me as a little odd that there hasn't been a documentary duly tearing TSA a new orifice. We've had one about McDonald's, one about Mormon ties to Proposition 8, one (albeit not really a political one) about properly sealing away nuclear waste for the next 100K years...I'd think some filmmaker would be up for taking on TSA. I'd say I understand the desire to avoid pissing off DHS and stay off terrorist watch lists, but Moore did Fahrenheit 9/11 which was as likely to do that as anything TSA-related.

    Curious.

    Caradoc beat me to the punch. I haven't seen it yet, but it's been in my Netflix queue. I think I'll move it to the top of the list.

    P.S. Jon, there was also an article a while back by a journalist who became a screener and then wrote about it for a magazine. I'll have to dig it up; it's buried in my files. Long story short: minimal training, minimal interview vetting, and NO background check.

    I remember reading that, but am unable to find it right now.. Doesn't look too hard to do. I know I'd get fired for not sending people through the Porn-O-Scope..
