TSA, Airlines, and other Annoying BS

Please note, I am not planning to discuss or follow the Malaysian lost plane. I think it’s a tragedy in the making. I may, some time in the future actually post a summary article on the situation, but right now, there’s not enough information and too many traumatized family members. My thoughts are with them.

Instead, I’m going to pick on the TSA. Again.
And a few idiotic airlines.

General

Govt fought for years to hide mistake that put student on no-fly listCalling BS on this sort of stupidity. Like putting 5 year olds on the list. Idiots.

Airlines

Brutal working conditions for Qatar Airlines’s flight attendantsThis just disgusts me. This sort of treatment is degrading and wrong.
