    I'm not big on coincidence and accidents at this level...


    In a massive security breach, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inadvertently posted online its airport screening procedures manual, including some of the most closely guarded secrets regarding special rules for diplomats and CIA and law enforcement officers.

    You mean the Official Guide to Asinine, Stupid, and Useless Procedures has been released to the public?

    Ooo, big security breach. A book written for food-service grade workers got out into the open. Whoopty-doo.

    We're not frequent flyers but found the trip through Austin's Bergstrom TSA pretty thorough, curteous, proper, and not at all inconvienient, even removing the cowboy boots.

    Pittsburgh, PA covered us with scores of sharp, suspicious eyes, a kind of hurry up and put your stuff into the basket, yes, your baseball cap too, but I suppose 9/11 caused that.....Nope we wasn't hairy faced camel kissers wearing bedsheets, just cowboy boots, Levis, a shirt and leather jacket, and a US Marines baseball cap.
    Anyway three cheers for TSA at Pittsburgh and else where !!! Right on !!!

    I have to admit, we found security checkers in Amsterdam to be much less courteous than we've come across in the US. Their comment, when one took my Coke after landing: "They're YOUR rules."
    In Mexico City, while courteous, they have a second package check at the boarding gate, and there remove drinks bought in the secure area.

    Like it says in the Zappa quote in my signature, TSA rules are stupid and unevenly enforced. The TSA blows dog.
