We are but actors in A Security Theater

Breda had two run ins with TSA (A Security Theater) on a recent trip.

Because she uses a prosthetic, she was subjected to particular scrutiny.

She didn't like it, but she put up with it because she was doing her part. By complying, she was making her, and her fellow passengers safer.

Except not.
So, that knife had been resting innocently at the bottom of the cellphone pocket the entire time I was traveling without me realizing it. The knife is entirely composed of metal, its blade is 2 1/4 inches long, and it went through TSA and onto an airplane not once, but twice. [snip] I had been humiliated for nothing. Nothing.

Feel safer yet?

AND if you pointed out TSA's error to them you'd end up like Natasha!
