”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 ‘S’ that routinely came up on my boarding pass. There are several reasons why one might receive a quadruple ‘S’ on one’s boarding pass if one doesn’t fit a terrorist profile: buying a ticket at the last minute, for instance, or paying in cash. But those circumstances didn’t apply to me. I kept asking, but not getting real answers.” (pg 93)
