None of which is directly related to the 2011 Miss TSA Pin Up Calendar that we promised you earlier. The TSA is also in the news for frisking an airport Santa who was in an Ohio airport for a seven-hour work day of entertaining travelers. That's actually not a terrible idea, since the long lines created by onerous TSA security theater are staggeringly vulnerable to terrorism. But the optics of taking Santa into the back room for a frisking...not great.
Also be aware that there's a kind of insufferable navel-gazing Washington Post editorial circulating this morning that reads like something an undergrad would submit to a public policy class. The opening two sentences: "We are more naked, as a nation, than we've ever been. We are forever baring our souls, revealing the mundane and the sacred."
Instead of reading that, please enjoy this collage of TSA pin ups. And if you're traveling a bunch through New Years like most of us here at Jaunted, good luck and stay sane!
