    Re: Really?

    Funny you mention that. The only airport and country to never have a terrorist incident is Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel.

    Every single passenger is interviewed by highly trained security personnel at least once and get this, I never have to take my shoes off!! (Even when I flew back to the states just days after the Christmas incident)

    But convincing the TSA to favor intelligence over technology would be even harder than getting your name off the watch list!

    They steal too... (as Amfarbs)

    Last month, they contacted my advisor for pictures of the University of Arizona's nuclear reactor which is being decommissioned this summer. I sent them my copyrighted picture with express directions that they retain my credit. Not only did they not give me credit (and take credit for themselves), they cropped off my copyright watermark off the bottom of the image, not to mention mislabeled the caption.
    See their article: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5heNUKqZg8CVRS8WjvbGZFuqABwlQD9CNP41O0
    And my original photo:

    Anyone have any experience trying to get legal recourse from them!? I suspect it would be a fruitless exercise in bureaucracy.
