I'm on my own no-fly list.

There's a movement to protest the invasive body searches from Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) agents by demanding pat-down searches instead of body scanners, even though the pat-down searches take considerable liberties with persons.

There was this link from The Raw Story about a potentially more disruptive way to demonstrate against the enhanced airport screenings. Go ahead, feel me up while I'm in a kilt worn the way the Scottish do. I dare ya. I could use the excitement.

There are people blogging loudly about TSA agents treating small children as if they could be Al Qaeda operatives.

But really, if you're that upset about how stupid it has become to fly from airports in this country, why fly in the first place? I guarantee you that if airlines don't fill their seats, they will have the Secretary of Homeland Security in an office screaming at her within 48 hours.

Oh, but if we rearrange our lives and stop flying, the terrorists will have won? They already have won this battle.

I admit I have no plans or needs to fly anywhere, so me refusing to fly isn't a big deal. But if you really want to make an impact, make a sacrifice. It might hurt you a little but it'll really hurt those who make money off you. Then something might change.

I'm terribly sorry that I am not flying on Thanksgiving...

I do have a kilt. And I would buy plenty of 'men's literature' in an open bag. (All models over 18.)

Would be a nice reason to wear a kilt to the airport. I'd be tempted to throw a couple of toys into the bag too. Nothing really big, just something that might make someone blush a little.
