The Hits Just Keep On Coming...

I just have to share this story, because I was so horrified by it.

The Boyfriend told me about his friend's wife, who was flying home to her native Turkey last week.  She set off the metal detector, and was sent through the scanners... only to then be subjected to a strip search.

A STRIP SEARCH.  And from what I understand, it was a hell of a search.  The only thing they could find on her was -- get this -- her TAMPON.  Can I get a collective WTF?

Let's overlook the fact that there's no way in hell a tampon would set off a metal detector, and move on to the repugnant misuse of authority that caused TSA agents to order a strip search.  Um, what?

And of course, this was in my home airport -- Boston Logan.  I just wanted to put this out into the world, because I can't get it out of my head!
