  • US and Color Coding?

    I was just checking out the news...

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp...nguage=printer

    Apperently we have a new thing with color codes...a security system at airports which rates flyers

    RED-Grouded
    YELLOW-Extra checks
    GREEN-normal

    This is going to be fun for Defcon, I wonder if your past will be included in this rating system

    Now, according to what I have read the hijackers of 9-11 had stolen ID, and where still allowed on the plane.

    Hmm.. I am sure they don't tell you what you rating is.. to bad, it would be an interesting test to see the percentage of non-fed convention attendees getting each rank..

      All I know is that I still appear to be on the TSA's shake-down-and-hassle list. Every time I have flown within the US since September 11th, I've been called for every single 'random' search at the airport.

      Looks like Rick Forno coincidentally has a similar piece running today - it's from the P.J. O"Rourke school of the best factual material being somewhat embellished, and a rather interesting read.

          is that a pickle in your pants, or are you just happy to fly with us?
          if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.
