Blog with your gov’t: TSA

OK, you’ve been waiting for this one…if you travel by air and would like to, um, discuss or even question some of the security screening, well, this blog’s for you!

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) started a blog called Evolution of Security in January. OK, the title threw me, but this is the slogan: “Terrorists evolve. Threats evolve. Security must stay ahead. You play a part.” Yes, the blog is about PR, but its official purpose is “to facilitate an ongoing dialogue on innovations in security, technology and the checkpoint screening process.” The opening entry promised that “postings from the public will be reviewed to remove the destructive but not touch the critical or cranky.” So talk to them. You never know, a posting here or there (or maybe thousands of them) might actually make things easier for all of us at some point.

As you might expect, it has had a lot of interest already. Categories include liquids, shoes, inconsistencies, etc.

And one of the TSA bloggers is Ethel from Wisconsin, who loves ice cream. It can’t get better than that, can it? But yes, it can…sometimes there are links to videos!
