Being the TSA blog lackey. Even if you can get past the whole ‘Now, really, if we don’t grope you, the terrorists win!’ argument you just know you won’t be getting much in the way of sympathy or breaks from your commenters.
Still, the TSA bloggers seem to be making the best of tough situation. I’m not a regular reader but they’re doing their best to convince readers (or try to anyway) that not only are existing security procedures effective but that they’re also totally reasonable. Of course, you’re going to have a mighty tough row to hoe if you’ve got to write statements like this:
And finally, the $10,000.00 question of the day… Will you receive a $10,000.00 fine if you opt out of screening all together and leave the checkpoint? While TSA has the legal authority to levy a civil penalty of up to $11,000.00 for cases such as this, each case is determined on the individual circumstances of the situation.
I don’t agree with them but I’ve got to give them props for doing the best they can with a crappy situation.
Check out the comments…ouch!
