I saw this at Tam's and it just generates exhausted sighs, now.
I have serious sympathy for anyone that has to fly for work. We haven't taken wing in a long time and I doubt we ever will again unless it is a private aircraft. And I think that may be the only solution - stop using the service. The airlines have chosen to ride along on this trip to hell - I choose to not reward them for it.
Now, the TSA road show? They know several people are driving more so I am not surprised at the TN insult. But I AM surprised that those folks stood for it. The state police ought to be no-shows if they had an ounce of Goddamned ethics and a shred of honor left.
But it does set that populace to thinking - is this a state I can continue to live in? There is a reason behind my selection of TX. Not that it is immune to such affrontery. Just that most Texans will only tolerate so much bullshit in their lives.
One thing I think we ought to do...aircraft. It stays in my mind and I cannot let it go...especially after the flight recently in a craft that will hold rather a lot of gear and family.
But I do wonder...is it time to start getting to know each other? Should we understand where we each are and our strengths and ETAs if things go all pear-shaped? Friends...ports in storms...it has been on my mind a lot lately.
