Ahh yes, “teaming up to keep your family safe”

SayUncle pretty much nails it:

Not sure what’s sadder. That the press is a willing lapdog in this or that TSA is at bus stations.

Finally some much-needed outrage

TSA employee beats up colleague for making fun of his small penis, as seen in a full-body image scanner. And they tell us that these things don’t compromise privacy? Yet another reason why I haven’t flown in a year. The government has made that method of transportation too frustrating and illiberal.
