Apparently, a Seattle area restaurant (right near the airport) has announced that it's refusing to serve TSA agents in protest of the way the TSA treats passengers who wish to fly. While I think the whole TSA security setup is terrible, an invasion of privacy and does little if anything to actually stop terrorism, I do think this is a bad move. The restaurant, obviously, is free to refuse service to whomever they choose (within the law, of course), but the TSA agents aren't the ones making the policies here. I'm really not sure what kind of statement this really makes. We've already seen that many TSA agents themselves are fed up with the new rules and are upset at the way people treat them. I'm not sure that treating those agents worse is really any form of a solution. The problem is the folks at the top.
