Facebook is used by the revolutionaries to organize all around the Arabic speaking world. I'm currently working in Saudi Arabia and this world is falling apart, country after country. I think that has far more to do with banning FB than people drawing pictures.
Not true. At least not for the average TSA person who checks you out and looks through your suitcases. They have no control over who gets put on the enhanced list. If they recognized an employee of the restaurant who won't let TSA eat there, then they can individually give them a harder time going through security. And based on some of the TSA staff I worked with, I would imagine that will happen. Tit for tat.
