â€In 2002, I began to notice that almost every time I sought to board a domestic airline flight, I was called aside by the Transportation Security Administration and given a more thorough search. When this was happening on nine flights out of ten, I asked the officials about the special search. They told me that the search was due to the quadruple â€˜Sâ€™ that routinely came up on my boarding pass. There are several reasons why one might receive a quadruple â€˜Sâ€™ on oneâ€™s boarding pass if one doesnâ€™t fit a terrorist profile: buying a ticket at the last minute, for instance, or paying in cash. But those circumstances didnâ€™t apply to me. I kept asking, but not getting real answers.â€ (pg 93)

Spiel redux: Everyone should buy 2 copies and give one away. Give one to someone you love or just think needs a wake up call. It’s been adding up over the years, I hadn’t realized, but Naomi Wolf lays it all out for us.
