Three Bits of News

Remember the controversy surrounding the Transportation Security Administration and their "enhanced" pat downs and use of full body scans for airport security? Well, another "enhanced" pat down is making the news where they forced a 95 year old woman to remove her adult diaper to complete the procedure. The woman's daughter contacted the TSA and filed a complaint, but the TSA said that protocol was followed. Thank the lords they're protecting our airwaves.

Former journalist for the Indianapolis Star, Ruth Holladay, has been providing excellent coverage of the 80+ positions that were recently eliminated at the Star. Check out her blog here and review the past half a dozen entries or so.

Finally, I'm leaving town for a few days. I'll be in San Diego, California, attending the CCHS conference. CCHS is the short term for the neurological/pulmonary condition I have, and these conferences are so the families can network. Speakers, mostly medical researchers and medical doctors, share research that they've done on CCHS. It's good because I really only see these people once in a blue moon, and I've never been to the west coast before. Should be fun.

Blogging will be kept to a minimum, if any, but you can always keep up with me on Twitter or Facebook.

Take care, all, and try to behave while I'm away.
