    Seems like people everywhere are taking a closer look at what TSA is doing.

    I think the TSA Game of Smoke and Mirrors is catching up with them.

    Note the paper's choice of words. :D This is precious ... and prescient. Articles like this will mark a turning point in the public debate.

    Should be no problem. They can set up OR's for exploratory surgery in the private rooms.

    I direct you to the Master List, an account from last year:

    My Very Own TSA Nightmare
    I guess there is a new category of suspect persons to the TSA: “traveling with scars."
    November 17, 2010 - by Andrew Ian Dodge
    . . . I went through the scanner fully cooperating and followed the instructions. Yet I was still taken aside as I exited the machine. No warning bells went off like with the old metal detectors, so I thought it might be random . . .
    I informed the TSA officer that it was the scar from my colon cancer operation that went from my crotch to my sternum. A day later the scar still hurts from the kneading and prodding. I was informed they were checking in order to determine if I had anything sewn into my stomach. I offered to lift my shirt to show the TSA officer the still rather graphic scar, but he refused.
    So in just five minutes I was told I looked like a notorious porn star by a TSA female employee and then had my scar examined by a man. I was so very pleased to be reminded of the painful and frightening (I had post-op complications including “dying several times”) experience of a few years ago.
    I guess there is a new category of suspect persons to the TSA: “traveling with scars . .
    Surely it would have been better had the dozens of staff on hand been inspecting packages in the holds of airplanes instead of kneading my scar."
