    As you've all probably seen, the number of comments to the TSA federal register notice is very low.

    We aim to change that with a Day of Action on Monday, June, 17th. The goal is to get as many people as possible to send in comments on that day. Obviously, we want people to keep on sending in comments until the comment period ends on June 24th, but it would be great if we could generate enough momentum to propel people into sending in their comments on the 17th. I've been sharing this blog post about the Day of Action: http://www.talesfromthe.net/jon/?p=3462 It's got a lot of details, and helpful info from EPIC. There is also this page for more general info about screening procedures, etc.: http://tsacomments.net/ and EPIC has a good page on it as well: http://epic.org/TSAcomment/

    Mail, In Person, or Fax: Address, hand-deliver, or fax your written comments to the Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, DC 20590-0001; fax (202) 493-2251. The Department of Transportation (DOT), which maintains and processes TSA's official regulatory dockets, will scan the submission and post it to FDMS. You'll need to include the docket number, which is TSA-2013-0004 . You can also send in comments electronically at regulations.gov : http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=TSA-2013-0004-0001 The site is somewhat buggy, so sending them in via some other way may be necessary. You'd think they don't want to hear from us!!

    Your comments don't have to be formal at all. You can write one short paragraph if you want. You can write about experiences that you've had at the airport. Write as much or as little as you want - whatever you're comfortable doing.

    Also, please share this with other friends and family who you think might want to comment. Please post on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Reddit, G+ and anywhere else you spend time. We need the numbers! For people on this site who spend time on flyer talk, please feel free to share this post with them. We need all the help we can get.
