For the second time in recent memory, TSA has flagged my carry on due to shoe trees. The trees get removed and stared at as if they are a relic from some ancient alien civilization. They are a bit of wood and metal, not a fucking light saber. This time they also earned me a full pat down (including cupping my balls but, by the grace of God, no anal intrusion). I am left to wonder about the state of these TSA agents' own dress shoes - probably deplorable, if I were to hazard a guess.
