    Good one.

    What have they done recently? I recall they broke someones insulin injector or some such (not diabetic, so not familiar with that stuff). Let gun parts hidden in stuff animals through. Took bribes to let drugs through. Loads of cases of stealing from luggage. I believe I read a recent congressional report showed that the full body scanners were crap for stopping things. The list since the beginning of the TSA would go on forever.

    A little OT, but what REALLY pisses me off is when they force everyone to turn off electronic devices at takeoff and landing when there is NO EVIDENCE that these devices in any way interfere with the plane's operation.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    You need to keep up with the news - the "guy they just caught with the upgraded underwear" bomb, - was a double agent - sent in to Yemen to get the info. Now under CIA protection 'somewhere'

    I fly all the time, and I extremely happy that they make everyone turn off their phones. I would hate to be on a plane with 100 people gabbing away.

    But no, the devices do nothing to the plane.

    No no - no no - I've been in enough threads concerning crying children and screaming babies on flights to know that no one on that flight felt nothing but relief when they arrived with their sanity intact.

    I am not fooled!
    A screaming comes across the sky.
