    Angers me so, that people in 'authority' are such fuck-heads.

    I got a question for those of you that travel frequently. Last month I accompanied a group of 7th and 8th graders from Chicago to Boston. It had been booked at least 6 months in advanced, DL #'s and SSI #'s were provided by all adults.

    Leaving from Midway, no problem. On the return trip though, my ticket was stamped SSSSSSSSxxxxxxxxxx, because of that they had to empty my bags and check me closely. Was this random or is this going to be a future problem?

    here? hat survey, which also elicited opinions about screening in general and about a proposed registered-traveler program that would expedite screening for those who registered personal information and possibly fingerprints in advance, is available at http://btcweb.biz.

    This is a prime example of why I refuse to fly anywhere.

    A friend of mine use to work for the TSA, that is one of the silliest and most disorganized organizations ever created. No conformity between any of the airports and everyone is scared for their jobs all the time. He said it was the worst job he had ever had. No wonder the airline are going bankrupt.
