Thinking … an increasingly rare commodity

TSATSACouldn’t help but notice - and certainly cannot resist the comment.. Going through the process for a recent flight - message courtesy of that fine institution The TSA.

At the security check …. “Please carry your boarding pass with you” … and … “Please check your phone through the scanner”.

My boarding pass was on my phone.

Said it before - saying it again - this agency is not ready for prime time

Update - June 2nd

Melvin Carraway has been replaced at the TSA - I only wish it was because of this post :-)

Mr John Gruber has exactly the same feeling

It gets worse :

The acting head of the TSA has been reassigned following a report that “federal undercover investigators were able to penetrate security checkpoints at U.S. airports carrying illegal weapons or simulated bombs 95 percent of the time.”

A computer glitch grounded every United flight this morning. The glitch added to a chaotic morning for airlines as bomb threats were made against at least five airliners.
