If you don’t want to walk through a poorly tested full-body scanner or have a TSA agent belittle your anatomy […]
To absolutely no one's surprise, the mainstream media last week ignored a legitimate grassroots protest against the TSA's allegedly invasive full-body scanners.
Here’s a question everyone should be asking after last week’s stunning verdict against Andrea Abbott, the Nashville mother who tried to stop TSA agents from patting down her teenage daughter: Where do travelers turn when they have a legitimate grievance against the agency charged with protecting America’s transportation systems?
It started like it always does, just a few moments before I arrived at the airport. Except this time, the symptoms felt exponentially worse.
It happened to Ann Holley again last week. As she passed through the security checkpoint at Atlanta's busy airport, she asked a TSA agent to "opt out" of being screened by a full-body scanner.
Is pre-checking the box on an online transaction always unethical? I thought the answer to that question was obvious after the federal government weighed in on the issue, declaring it an "unfair and deceptive" practice, and the state of Minnesota fined two insurance companies for opt-out violations.
