    Anyone on this forum? This story should get far wider attention than just the post here.

    For those who use FB, put up a link there.

    Interesting, however, that the writer never says a word about what happened to his mother in the private room. He should have told his readers what happened to her in there.

    It's mind-boggling to me that people agree to go into a private room with these thugs. I don't get it. This (expletive deleted) has been publicized for over two years now. What is wrong with people??

    By the way, this has been added to the Master List.

    I think part of it is that many people who only travel a couple of times per year, if that often, believe that TSA screeners are actually doing something for their safety. They don't know that many TSA employees are criminals themselves, will steal anyone blind, sexually assault them, verbally abuse them, and are just low life's in general. The message is getting out but work remains to be done.

    That's an understatement. Message just received from a close friend of mine, a woman who, by her own oft-stated admission, cannot stand to have anyone touch her -- I mean not even for a massage. A professional, wonderful, welcome massage. Won't do it. Cannot stand to have someone accidentally brush up against her on the train. She has told me this. Yet look at what she wrote back to me when I told her I wish her luck when she goes on a trip this summer (she hasn't flown in a year):
    I give up with these people.

    We don't need 100% on our side but to have 60 to 70% would make our position very strong. I think we are headed in the right direction. Getting more politicians to see the light would be helpful and worth the effort.

    That story is totally disgusting to me. But I'm sure out there, a whole of TSA agents are patting themselves and each other vigorously on the back for a job well done.

    As she's pretty much a novice, with any kind of luck she'll get pulled aside and groped, at least partially, not that I wish her any psychological harm, but it needs to happen. She'll change her tune fast.

    Something tells me that we are at the 60-70% level already. Yes, there are still AFSers out there but as more and more get groped, they become fewer and fewer.

    We live in hope.

    This, by the way, is a highly educated, highly paid, well-informed, politically aware woman.

    Denial, denial, denial. No matter what your level of privilege, denial is a more powerful force.
