Blog Post Archives

UPDATE 6-13-2012: We upgraded to the new Blogger template and since it has an archive feature, (on the side bar) we will no longer need to update this page.  

The archive index on our page isn't the most user friendly, so I've added all of the posts here (sorted newest to oldest) and will continue to update the list as new posts go live. I'll also add an "Blog Post Archives" hyperlink to the side bar. ~ Blogger Bob

Thanks, the list will be helpful when looking for an older topic.

Can we pick a color to highlight the puppy posts?

I'd vote for yellow, but those wouldn't be easy to see. :D How about red?

Holy smokes that is a lot of posts. Thanks

Anonymous derided:

"RB seems to see conspiracies in everything."

Or perhaps RB was just pointing out a missing link? "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

Anon, I asked the Blog Team a straight forward question about a missing link.

How you can even imagine a conspiracy in such really tells us all what level your playing on.

TSA inspection damaged my shoes!

At the TSA inspection at Raleigh Durham International airport, prior to my flight to St. Louis, on NOV 5, 2009, 03:45 PM, Flight 5297, I picked up my shoes out of the tray in which I had placed them minutes before. When I picked them up to put them back on my feet, I realized that they were in pieces! Wearing them was impossible! I asked several TSA officers what happened to my shoes, but none could explain. I had to continue my voyage while wearing socks without shoes! Nobody working at the airport offered an explanation for what had happened to my good pair of shoes or offered me a claim form. Only after landing in St. Louis, and collecting my checked suitcase, was I able to get out my sneakers and put them on my feet. When I wrote a letter to the makers of my shoes (Clarks, UK), the company responded that my shoes must have gone through hydrolysis, a degradation over time. But I want to know what are the odds that both shoes degraded at the exact same moment in a TSA inspection prior to my flight? A new pair of the same kind of shoes costs over $150. Please tell me what you think happened to my shoes at the airport? Also, please warn other travelers to be ready for such episodes.

p.s. I got photos of the damaged shoes and could upload them to your blog if you tell me how.

Put those pound dogs to work!

Instead of spending millions of dollars to intrude on privacy with the full body scanners that can't detect powdered bombs sewn into underwear, let's train those thousands of unwanted dogs at the animal shelters and put them to work at airports to sniff out bombs and contraband.

A low tech, low cost alternative that should work. For the price of food and a treat, you have one superb bomb detector!

Great there's a list of the your post. But i think you should change the font size of these. Too small for me. Thanks!

Les said...

there seem to be some missing links. i had a google search but it doesn't show up.

Monte said...

When I calmly opted out of a TSA backscatter screening, the clearly angered TSA agent shouted "OPT OUT" in a way that seemed designed to attract the attention of my fellow fliers as much as anything else.

Are security procedures implemented in a manner designed to make a public spectacle of citizens who choose to exercise their constitutional rights?

See, for example:
Co-host Meg Mclain handcuffed in public place to chair, surrounded by 12 police officers and 5 TSA agents:

Thanks for the archive! Or maybe it makes sense to make a classification on the topics?

9/22/09 to 12/1/9 the links are bad. You have mashed two links together in all those.
