I know that as an upstanding American quaking in my boots about the ever-present terrorist threat that surrounds me at every moment, I now feel infinitely safer that the TSA has done a thorough inspection of your clearly insidious one piece sweater.

*breathing a sigh of relief right now*

Great job TSA! Keep up the good work.

The screener say to me, "please take off your sweater" I tell him "I can't. Its all one piece". He repeats the order to take off the sweater. I open the cardigan up to let him see that the top underneath is really attached to the cardigan. He says a third time, "Please take it off" I tell him, "if I take off the cardigan, I'll be standing here in my underwear". Finally he tells me to step to the side, I have to be searched. Then I have to go through the same thing again with the female agent they called over to search me. It never even crossed my mind that morning that what I was wearing was going to be a problem.
Debz - If that "sweater Nazi" was at Will Rogers in OKC, it is probably the same clown who told me mascara was a liquid.
