How many of you have been needlessly searched or in other ways inconvenienced by the TSA? I travel for a living and I have been in and out of the country hundreds of times. Nevertheless this long and flawless record of safe travel affords me no leeway regarding searches and having my luggage damaged by the klutzes at TSA. I've seen nuns and farmers randomly searched by TSA. Memo to TSA, an eighty year old woman in a habit is probably a nun. An eighty year old man with Red Wing boots, a John Deere hat, and Oshkosh B'gosh bibs is probably a farmer. There is no need to search these people. Search the man who is talking to his fist. When I asked TSA why they didn't search the man who was talking to his fist they told me random searches were decided by number, and that they are not allowed to use their own judgement. We know what group of people the terrorist come from (mainly) but TSA does not profile those people. Nor do they use positive profiling to let frequent, responsible travelers like me through without a hassle. If we really have a good intelligence network, why are we not using it to clear people who pose no threat so that resources can be directed to searching those who do? Anybody else think the way the TSA is being run is idiotic, arbitrary, unfocussed and wasteful?
