Apparently the TSA has finally gone too far. I figured it would only be a matter of time before they added one thing too many to the list of things you can’t bring or can’t do or have to put up with. And the combination of the backscatter x-ray machines (so-called “porno scanners”) with the “enhanced pat-downs” has apparently broken the proverbial camel’s back. This week there’s been an explosion of reports and blog articles from people all over the place sharing their horror stories at the hands (get it?) of the TSA.

I even climbed on the catch-phrase bandwagon when I sent my weekly survey about ultimate on Thursday. The options about whether everyone wanted to play were:

  • Yes.
  • No.
  • If you touch my junk, I’ll have you arrested.
  • And today I found a hilarious graphic that was apparently on the cover of a book left at a TSA checkpoint.

    It’ll be interesting to see how all of this plays out. Maybe some common sense will finally prevail.
