The ownership of the Los Angeles Times are the same people that control the criminally-invassive polices that TSA is currently using and trying to justify.
That rag that used to be called the LA Times ought to be subjected to a review of their records and their management - which is at least as thorough as are the searches of people
which they are advocataing against here.
We have the same problem here in Hawaii. The local rag, the StarAdvertiser (a Frankenstein monster sewed together from two dead predecessors) has steadfastly refused to address the issue of TSA abuses even as our tourism plunges to record lows.
