You might want to take a copy of this letter for your own files. Strikes me as one of those potentially historic documents. If you're in Texas, you've been hearing a lot about this topic, if not in Texas, I suspect you may not have heard too much about it.
This is one of those moments in time that makes one proud to be a Texan. The Texas legislature decided it was time to take things in their own sensible hands and pass a law making it illegal for Federal employees (TSA) at the airport to molest travelers, including babies and young children. The law had completed its trip through the "process" and was due for a final vote yesterday. The letter was written to a few of the top ranking Texas legislators and the bill was pulled.
There may be more to come on this subject, but even if not, the Texas legislature has accomplished a significant thing. It forced this letter to be written. I like the old Boston politician, Martin Lomasney's advice on the importance of discretion: "Never write if you can speak; never speak if you can nod; never nod if you can wink."
The way I read this letter is that a Federal Attorney has carried the message that if Texas insists on protecting its citizens from Federal molestation, the airline system inbound to Texas may be shut down. We will fondle the ladies, or the planes don't fly. Pretty amazing stuff, isn't it? And here it is in writing to be seen through the ages.
