Achtung, TSA!

I removed this image from my blog and web site due to the threat of a lawsuit by the YMCA, the owner of the National Safe Place logo.

(Anonymous): Great Graphic!

I hope you don't mind, but I used your graphic on my blog, with accreditation and a link back here to your blog. The image really captures the American airport experience! you can see it and read my little rant at http://mayantrip.com

Brilliant! :)

Words simply cannot provide an adequate container to convey how much awesome is involved here. Siskel and Ebert give it two thumbs up!*

* - Well, Ebert gives it two thumbs up 'cause Siskel's like dead and stuff... actually Roper gives it two thumbs up 'cause Ebert's not doing all that well these days and is taking it easy

You should sell this on t-shirts. I'd buy one.

Tshirts will be available shortly.

Charles Gaba: Awesome, but why all scratched up?

I love it, but I'm curious as to why it was designed to be all smudgy/scratchy...is the idea that it's supposed to be a weathered, beaten-up sign?

olegvolk: Re: Awesome, but why all scratched up?

The original was based on a photograph of a real sign. I also made a cleaned-up version: http://olegvolk.livejournal.com/921394.html

Congratulations, you're also on the Consumerist. Next time I travel, this is going along.

(Anonymous): TSA mandates uniforms for all passengers

Since scanners have trouble seeing through some types of clothing, the TSA reacted by mandating "airport uniforms for all passengers".

I got the enhanced patdown on Sunday, probably courtesy of my underwire bra.

The next time I'm pulled aside for a patdown I will strip in front of the whole line rather than submit to it. (I assume once I get my shirt and bra off (which is still legal in many jurisdictions) they will get the point.)

HaHa _ this is great !! i thought it was a hassle to fly a few years ago. my cousin got the extra searching then because he had legally changed his last name to be the same as his birth father ...

(Anonymous): Acthung TSA graphic

While I understand there are travelers who have issues with the new TSA security screening procedures, as a member of the board of directors of National Safe Place, I take issue with the horrific portrayal of the Safe Place logo that you have obviously copyright infringed and altered. The Safe Place logo is known in communities to represent a safe haven for children seeking shelter and/or removal from dangerous family situations. You have altered the logo to represent the very kind of dangers that children seek to escape. You should remove this copyright infringement immediately.

Mon, Dec. 6th, 2010 09:08 pm (UTC)

FYI you did not "Design" this sign in 2008. This design was created in 1983 for the Safe Place Program in Louisville, KY. Might want to get your facts straight before you take creative liberties like that with a trademarked image.

Mon, Dec. 6th, 2010 09:11 pm (UTC)

It's called "parody" and a protected form of political speech.

Fri, Jan. 21st, 2011 03:20 pm (UTC)

i enjoy exactly how you receive your level throughout.
