Air Travel: A Touching Experience

Dave Barry writes about his first encounter with the TSA’s strictly enforced new policy of touching passengers’ genitalia.

I will experience this for myself this holiday season. If the choice is between some bureaucrat either touching my ding-dong or taking a picture of it, I suppose I’ll take the groping. Full-body scans are a more permanent indignity.The TSA claims that it destroys its nude pictures. But that claim is inaccurate. The machines automatically save the images.

Or maybe I’ll drive, even though it’s statistically more dangerous.

I hate the holidays.
