Big brother says you can either eat broccoli, or cabbage. See, you're free to pick what you get for dinner.

I was in line at the one in Phoenix, a couple of 55-65 old gals were in front of me and commented on how short the line we were in and how nice it was. I pointed out this was the scan line... Their eyes got HUGE!!... They looked at each other and the one said, "we've come this far, we might as well take the plunge".. It was just a funny site to see.

Maybe checkpoint 10 should be renamed "Checkpoint Chickee". Until the TSA decides to honr the Constitution, which can probably only be done by disbanding it, I will continue to drive whenever possible. If the airlines are wondering where their profits are going, just look out the front door.

All civil, all removed. Just an FYI for those of you who do not yet realize you live in a Stalinesque country.

One security line has it. If i wanted to hide something, I think I would go to one of the other lines. Until it is 100%, it won't make it any safer, just slower.
