20 October 2011


I just went through security at the Seattle airport.  I didn't get the TSA treatment, but just watching one of my fellow-travelers get the FULL pat-down made me uncomfortable.  I can't imagine what it would have been like for her, but her expression conveyed shame and helplessness.

Much has been written about this, and much more eloquently than I can, but I just felt like I needed to say something.  In the ongoing see-saw between liberty and safety, this was a turning point for me.
