|6/5/2015 - If there is a more hapless, incompetent federal agency than the Transportation Security Administration, we would be hard-pressed to name it.

|7/19/2014 - United Airlines, in conjunction with the airport, contracted a company to kill off birds at the Bush Intercontinental Airport this past weekend, to allegedly "reduce the health and safety risks posed" by the animals as reported by KHOU 11 News.

|11/29/2012 - New airport scanners used by the Transportation Security Administration are already too revealing, and potentially very dangerous to your health. But they're going to seem tame by comparison once the next generation of scanners arrives - and they are on their way.
The U.S. government is developing...|

|8/16/2012 - Iris scanning is supposed to assess a biometric analysis of who you are, like finger prints, only faster and easier to automate.
The iris scanning machines won't get you to the boarding gate straight away, but they will get you first in line for TSA's gropers and X-rays. Users who fly a lot claim...|
|6/3/2012 - The comedy of errors that is the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would truly be funny; if only the agency's abysmal performances on nearly every level did not carry such serious implications for the genuine safety and security of air travel.
When its agents aren't pulling toddlers off...|
