Since imposing these unconstitutional invasive searches, TSA has not stopped a single terrorist act that could not have been detected by previously used methods.

Standing in the customs line at Dulles, a beagle sat down next to my cart. His uniformed handler pointed to my carry on and asked if I had an apple.

I am probably on some TSA - US Customs perp list as a fruit smuggler!
