Report 9/11 Anniversary Idiocy Here...

Figured I'd start a central repository for reports of idiocy, tear-jerking sentimentalism, and TSA honor guard sightings over the weekend. I don't fly again until the 18th, so I'll miss all the fun.

"thanks for the courteous support and for keeping us all safe today."

Apparently, they were out in force at Union Station today.

I had no idea they did this!

I'm also surprised there is no backlash against this thread, seeing as it does not give 150% deference to 9/11.

I fully support a patriotic remembrance of the events on September 11, 2001 but in no way support anything that TSA does or stands for.

My personal belief is that TSA represents everything that is NOT American, that TSA does not safeguard our lives as one TSA spokeshole (see above) claims, and that TSA makes America a worse place, not a better place.

Hey, everybody! Thanks for picking up the ball. I'm down for 6-8 weeks with a knee injury and surgery and wasn't paying attention to this idiocy this year.

Went through EWR yesterday morning, smooth as can be. No signs that it wasn't any other day of the year visible. Same for arrival in YYZ.
