Why I Don't Fly


As an American citizen, I have the ability to take an airplane from one city to another for business, pleasure, or a wild hair.  People often ask me if, in this post-9/11 world, the threat of terrorism keeps me grounded.  I answer, "Of course not".  The reason I don't fly is simple.  I don't like all the new invasion of privacy BS involved in purchasing a ticket and boarding a plane.  The following is a collection of links to other sites that should give you some idea of what I am talking about. Links will open in a new window.
