"Why does the TSA annoy so many of us? Not having the resources to do a survey, I resort here to what might be called educated speculation. I suspect it is because free men and women consider it invasive for government agents to order them around -- pat them down, make them endure electronic surveillance, being ordered around by TSA agents, etc. -- unless they give their permission. Just because someone embarks upon air travel it doesn’t follow that such permission can be inferred, especially if the search is conducted by government agents." (01/24/12)
