    TSA pat-down leaves Mich. man covered in urine

    ROMULUS, Mich. A bladder cancer survivor from Michigan who wears a bag that collects his urine said the head of the Transportation Security Administration called to apologize for an airport pat-down that caused the bag to spill its contents on his clothing.
    Tom Sawyer, a 61-year-old retired special education teacher, said the experience left him in tears before he caught a flight to Orlando, Fla., on Nov. 7.
    "I was absolutely humiliated. I couldn't even speak," the Houghton Lake man told MSNBC.com.
    Sawyer said TSA chief John Pistole called him Monday and apologized on behalf of the TSA. Sawyer told The Detroit News that he "very graciously" accepted Pistole's apology.
    "Here I am, just an average citizen from a small town," Sawyer told the Detroit Free Press. "I told him, `I only want training for the agents on medical conditions.'"
    Earlier Monday, Pistole said he was concerned about people such as Sawyer who have had uncomfortable experiences with agents. He told CBS' "The Early Show" that he had "great concern over anybody who feels like they have not been treated properly or had something embarrassing" happen.
    Sawyer said that once he got through security, he changed his bag, but didn't have time to change his clothing and had to board the plane soaked in urine.

    I'm firmly convinced by now that they're untrained idiots on a power trip. Can anybody find the rationale they use for selecting secondary screening? Do they need reasonable suspicion? Is it random? Is it like a DUI checkpoint, with arbitrary rules for who gets screened? Do they get any training on conducting a search? Are they held to any standard?

    And... I'm honestly waiting for the "randomly selected" coed with DD cups to be presented a choice: search by the male screener with the boner "because there are no women available" or missing a flight and being added to the no-fly list...
