Wil Shipley – Q&A with TSA Chairman John Pistole

Attention grabber:

Which brings me to this question: If you hired a security guard to watch your house, and 10 years later your neighbors said, “Hey, several times now dudes have tried to steal your shit, but we came over and stopped them each time after your security guy let them through,” would you continue to employ him? Especially if every time you tried to enter your house, he grabbed your nuts and took naked pictures of your wife?

Honestly, John, how do you still have a job?

(The interview isn’t real, as such.) (Seriously tho read the whole thing.) (The thing about the expensive gadgets and shareholders is particularly good too.)

Update:

“It’s not a grope. It’s a freedom pat.”
