Call me ideosyncratic, but indulging my libertarian folly,
I like to have access to the bathroom
on an unlimited, unscheduled basis.
Accordingly, I did not welcome news on TV
that said that for the last hour of flite we
will all be confined to our seats. (The last
terrorist set himself on fire in his seat.)
I fly a lot. I can foresee sanitary problems
(and great stress)
with such a regimen among 100s of passengers
including little children, and the frail elderly
being confined to their seats for the last hour.
I called the US TSA and I was given assurance
that this applies only to international flites
and that sanitary relief will not be refused,
according to what the TSA website says.
Anyway, that indicates that we r safe from
this abuse on domestic flites; I 'm going to Florida soon.
i heard they're going to catheterize all passengers
That can be painful
unless thay put us under general anesthesia b4 thay do it.
That presents the risk of terrorists using the cath lines
the good guys.
I don 't trust terrorists; I never did.
