I was powerless to stop a total stranger from running her hands over the most private parts of my body as a condition of normal, ordinary business travel.

Its vile and disgusting what is done by our government, in our name, for safety and security which it provides neither. But I would challenge Ms. Alkon and everyone else. You are not powerless. Don’t Fly. The sheep will fly. But even if everyone who knows this is wrong took a stand and refused to fly — changes would be made almost over night.
This is my pledge: I will never fly for recreation. I will only fly for work if it is required by my employer.
Since I work for myself and my brother owns a private plane, that last one doesn’t come up often. I live in Oklahoma and within a 12 hour drive are all kinds of amusements. We go to Florida at least once a year — it is a 2 day drive if we take our time — but we can get to the panhandle in a day if we work hard. Screw flying. Screw the nanny government. You are not powerless. Don’t fly and watch the government and the airlines come begging.
