I try to imagine this "public outrage"happening two months after the 911 attacks, can't manage to imagine that. So now that it's 9 years after 9/11, what is changed? Is there still an Al Qaeda guy whose job it is to figure out ways to get bombs onto planes? Yeah, he is still holding down that job.
I end up feeling sorry for the TSA staffers, called perverts and scum to their faces, keep your hands off my junk, yadda yadda. Are we under the mistaken impression that theirs is a fun job this week? If you want to avoid the pat down, all you have to do is walk through the xray- ooooh, can't do that, they might sell the grainy image of my penis to Playgirl, or God forbid, might see that I am fat.
Uh, we can't see that you are fat? Got news for you, The clothing does not really hide that. Oh well, I guess we all needed to take a break from being rational.
