Okay, normally I am the first one to suggest that not everything is a conspiracy or the tip of an iceberg, but there is something about this story that just does not sit right with me. TSA takes first steps toward 'trusted travel' program - CNN.com Basically, the TSA will speed along travellers who cooperate with them and answer a few voluntary questions, like name, date of birth, and gender, to make sure that you do not match anyone on the terrorist watch lists. So far, no problem. However, they said that this would be the first step in a program... how much more will they require? And how long will the penalty be for not answering? I have no problem with answering some questions, because I know I am not on any watch lists. However, I do not like the direction in which this could go.
