This morning comes the unbelievable story of Bill Gordon, a 63-year-old air traveler from Colorado who was pulled aside and patted down for the crime of having something in his pocket while passing through the security checkpoint in Memphis.
Yes, apparently that’s enough to make the TSA suspicious. That, and criticizing the agency. (More on that in a minute.)
