"They are just doing their job." I'm sorry, but that smacks too much of lessons learned in the mid 20th Century: I was just following orders. It sounds like the excuses henchmen of any police state you could possibly name in modernt times. If you have a job that requires you to do something reprehensible, you have a moral obligation to quit that job. Until about 5 months ago, we had had a concensus from time immemorial that touching other people's genitals and breasts was reprehensible when that contact was coerced. In anticipation of the usual TSA apologists: The choice between TSA groping your most intimate body parts or not flying is not a reasonable choice and is truly coersive. The TSA is also now targeting innccent peopel in train and bus stations, as well as subway systems, and there are reports about plans to target motorists, so soon we will have no choices at all. You defended on your show a massive bureaucracy that commits civil and human rights abuses on a daily basis, and now you are complaining that they are too slow? This is how bureaucracy always works when there is no accountability and the US public, including you, has allowed TSA to operate with absolute impunity. Now you get to suffer the consequences. And being too slow is the least of our worries when faced with the TSA.Apr 22, 2011
