TSA Alert

Americans are constantly told that they don’t mind giving up small things to be safer – like taking off their shoes at the airport. Well, I do. It is an indignity I would prefer not to have to submit to just because one crazy tried to flick his Bic at his sneakers. It feels like bowing to a threat I do not feel – or rather, I feel the threat is from the government, not the potential bombers. It feels like shaving the pubic hair from a woman who is having a baby – a totally medically unnecessary show of power on the part of the hospital and the patriarchy.
