No Way TSA

The TSA is in the news these days, and it is not a pretty sight. Despite many claims that images from body scanning machines would not, could not be saved, according to this report they have.

A Forbes blogger advocates for the abolition of the TSA, on the basis that it has not improved safety and more often violates civil rights. I think he makes some good points, though I'm not sure abolition of the agency is possible or beneficial.

There is an interesting story anout a man who refused both the body scan and the pat-down. Apparently, it is against the rules to leave a screening area once you have entered it if screening is not complete.

More to come, I'm sure.
