I will not fly due to this horrible violation of human rights. Though, I know that my decision lets the human rights violating, overzealous bullies at Homeland Security and the TSA win on some level. (I do think that air travel will go into further decline.)
(I am having trouble getting the video to embed. If you don’t see it, link is here:
Hat tip to Everywhereist Blog, where I found the video.
(And, in case you are wondering: The woman in the video can talk. In fact, she is a storyteller. Like many other people, her response to this humiliation includes speechlessness.)
