As the World Turns Implodes

Why can’t people like this just shoot themselves?!

In other news, US citizens give up more of their rights:

TSA suggests that you help prevent the need to break your locks by keeping your bags unlocked (unless you are transporting a firearm).

If your bag is unlocked, then TSA will simply open the bag and screen the bag. However, if the bag is locked and TSA needs to open your bag, then locks may have to be broken.

I really don’t appreciate this. They went through my bag last week and left a nice little flyer telling me they had done so. So, not only can they open my bag at their will now, they are completely authorized to break the lock. In addition, they offer no guarantee whatsoever about missing contents.

Hehe, they also say this:

The new screening equipment will be out of your view and the screening of your checked baggage will occur behind the scenes.
This is not true! At O’Hare, the new screening machines are right out in the lobby and you actually have to bring your luggage over to them after you check in. Unfortunately, they keep contradicting themselves here. First they say there is no change, then they say that you will have to bring your baggage to the screening area. Perhaps I should quote the 4th amendment and attempt to use the Constitution out of context? Nah. That’s enough for now.
