I've never received as much mail as I've received on the subject of the TSA, except for all the mail I get from Nazis. I'll be posting some of the these letters in the coming days. Goldblog reader Bob Covington writes:

I also have no plans to submit to the Get Naked For America security plan, but a few years ago before this monstrosity was developed, I was due to fly from Regan National to wherever and I was picked at random, as I always am, for secondary screening.  It got too personal very quickly and I objected. I said "That's enough. Stop." He said I could not object. I said "I'm not flying today. I'm leaving." and he said I couldn't leave and that if I wanted he could bring the police over. I in fact called the officer over myself who confirmed that these knuckleheads could not force me to fly. I got my things and left.
