Quotes-start.png "Have Americans become such babies that a pat-down designed to prevent another 9/11 causes adults to melt down? Yes, I've been through body scans. Yes, I've been patted down, not just at airports, but also covering political events. Yes, I've had to contend with the rare overbearing TSA worker who let the power go to his head. Are these searches intrusive? Sure, but they beat crossing the country in a covered wagon." Quotes-end.png
