National Opt-Out Day/Protest the TSA update

Check out the latest updates at

The news media says that the TSA protests did not work, because airport lines are quiet.

Well, part of the message from several of the boycott groups was “don’t fly”. So, the quietness may mean something, too. And, it will be interesting to see more stats about the percentages of people who did and did not fly today.

At wewontfly, they have a post with some feedback about the day. It appears that TSA may have been friendlier, and picked out less passengers for screening, so that the day went smoothly.

If so, then the protest against x-ray scanners and enhanced, genital-groping pat downs may have accomplished something. (But, the protesters will have to follow through with their message, and not let one day of calm derail the call for justice.)
