The TSA. Yes, that TSA.
I’ll go ahead and, as Coach Dennis Green would put it, “crown ’em” the Best Blog of 2008. Sure it’s a little early in the year – ok, it’s a little early in the life of their blog – but here’s why I love it:
Posters on this blog have had their first official impact on our operations. That’s right, less than one week since we began the blog and already you’re affecting security in a very positive way….
On Monday afternoon we began receiving questions about airports that were requiring ALL electronics to be removed from carry-on bags (everything, including blackberrys, iPods and even cords). This practice was also mentioned on several other blogs and left us scratching our heads.
So … we checked with our security operations team to figure out what was going on. After some calls to our airports, we learned that this exercise was set up by local TSA offices and was not part of any grand plan across the country. These practices were stopped on Monday afternoon and blackberrys, cords and iPods began to flow through checkpoints like the booze was flowing on Bourbon Street Tuesday night. (Fat Tuesday of course).
The communication style is witty but not forced. It’s not sugarcoated. And many of the comments are scathing … and they’re being allowed.
Very fun to watch.
When will the FCC start its blog?
