TSA wants leukemia victim, 95, to remove her adult diaper. Skipwaves 6/26

A woman has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.

Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.

“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”

Sari Koshetz, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration in Miami, said she could not comment on specific cases to protect the privacy of those involved.  Read more of this outrage from Panama City.


 Ted Turner: Climate Change ‘Most Serious ... Problem Humanity Has Ever Faced’

Media mogul Ted Turner says climate change is “probably the most serious--and, in all fairness, the most complex--problem that humanity has ever faced.”

He added: “It is really easy to understand how some people don’t get it, because it’s so complex and complicated.”

Why do people believe poluting Republicans now???


Mediate.com is worth your read this week as it covers some of the insanity of the right over President Obama.  Including The Drudge Report's misleading headline that quotes Michelle "admitting" help from the media.  What she meant so clearly was help from the media in not making their two children spectacles.  Drudge would have you believe they were going easy on Obama POLITICALLY.  Radioman noticed it right away and Mediate wrote about the misleading headline on Drudge.  It's ALL good.

Comic book vandalism of famous Soviet sculpture.  Bulgarians managed to get pictures of a famous Soviet era sculpture that had been vandalized last week.  The workers sculpture was painted over to depict comic book characters.  It was quickly repaired but not before some photos were taken.   (double click it for large detail.)

Another arrest for recording a cop... when will they learn the Constitution?

Can you be arrested for recording police from your front yard? If the video you’re about to see is for real, then yes.

A woman in Rochester, NY was allegedly arrested last month when she decided to film a traffic stop that happened in front of her house. With camera in hand, she reportedly stood in her front yard and filmed the events. But after recording for a little while, eventually an officer started addressing her, telling her that he didn’t feel “safe” with her recording him and telling her to go into her house. She refused, saying she had the right to record from her front lawn. He disagreed. That eventually led to her arrest:
