The TSA is apologizing to an 84 year old woman who claims she was strip searched and brutalized with the weapon she tried to sneak through security. (a metal walker)

I am glad that the TSA is doing their job. However, I don’t think this woman is strong enough to really hijack a plane with her walker and I still really feel the TSA needs to be focusing on people with strong hands.

Last week a TSA agent upon finding a vibrator in this woman’s luggage, decided to leave a friendly note.

Although maybe humorous. Definitely not professional. Yes, we know the TSA goes through our bags. But they don’t need to rub it in our face any time they encounter something that might be a bit private.

Well, at least the person responsible was found and suspended. If you think that sounds odd. Don’t worry, the TSA firmly denied it first.

If anyone else has had success bribing the TSA please let us know!

Expensive TSA Scanners Foiled By Cheap Shiny Shirts

Alla Dreyvitser at the Washington Post has an interesting story on how she discovered the TSA body scanners are easily confused by shiny shirts. I don’t know to what extent shiny shirts cause problems for the machines. But if it is a serious problem, then couldn’t anyone just put on shiny underclothes and conceal anything they want? My guess is TSA strip searches will supplement gropings.

TSA Allows Guns and Knives On Planes (Most of the time)

The TSA continues to fail at their expensive security theater. First we have this guy who brought a gun on the plane by accident. (How does anyone carry around a gun by accident?) TSA didn’t know until he reported it after landing. Then we have this crazy guy in Salt Lake City who boarded a plane with a knife and threatened to cut the throat of another passenger.

Thank goodness the TSA is at least keeping us safe from big hair!

And if you are not yet feeling safe enough…

Experts say every year since the September 11 attacks, federal agencies have conducted random, covert tests of airport security.

A person briefed on the latest tests tells ABC News the failure rate approaches 70 percent at some major airports. Two weeks ago, TSA’s new director said every test gun, bomb part or knife got past screeners at some airports.
