I TOOK MY 88 YEAR OLD MOTHER WITH ME ON A TRIP TO CALIFORNIA TO VISIT MY SON. I PUSHED HER IN A WHEELCHAIR THROUGH A LOT OF AIRPORTS. FIRST WE HAD TO GO THRU SECURITY AT FORT WAYNE AND IT WAS FAIRLY SIMPLE. WE STILL HAD TO TAKE OFF OUR SHOES ETC., BUT WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE THERE. WHEN WE GOT TO DETROIT I HAD TO PUSH HER IN A WHEELCHAIR A VERY LONG DISTANCE, AND WE DIDN'T HAVE TO DO SECURITY. THEN WE FLEW TO PHOENIX AZ...I DON'T EVER WANT TO GO TO PHOENIX AGAIN!!!!!!!! FIRST OF ALL, A GUY GRABBED MOTHER AND ANOTHER WOMAN IN A WHEELCHAIR AND TOOK OFF RUNNING WITH THEM AND I HAD TO RUN TO KEEP UP, CARRYING HER CARRYONS AND PURSE AND MY CARRYONS AND PURSE ETC... RUN!! HE HELD OUT HIS HAND FOR MONEY, AND MOTHER GAVE HIM $4. HE SAID "IS THAT ALL?" THEN HE DUMPED US OUTSIDE THE TERMINAL TO WAIT FOR A BUS!!!!!!! HE DIDN'T STAY TO HELP US GET THE WHEELCHAIR ON OR ANYTHING. IT WAS 119 DEGREES IN THE SUN. THEN WE HAD TO TAKE A BUS TO ANOTHER TERMINAL, AND GO THROUGH SECURITY AGAIN!!! THIS TIME MOTHER WAS DOUBLE SEARCHED AND MADE TO STAND UP OUT OF HER WHEELCHAIR AND THEY KEPT HER IN A GLASS ROOM AND WOULDN'T LET ME NEAR HER!!! THEY SEARCHED THROUGH ALL OF OUR LUGGAGE AND WERE VERY BRUTAL!! THEY WERE NOT NICE!!! THEN WHEN WE FINALLY GOT TO OUR GATE, WE HAD TO WAIT UNTIL THEY TALKED SOMEONE ELSE INTO TAKING ANOTHER FLIGHT BECAUSE THEY HAD OVERBOOKED OUR FLIGHT TO SACRAMENTO. WHEN WE FINALLY GOT ON THE PLANE, INSTEAD OF BEING BOARDED FIRST AND GETTING IN THE FIRST ROW, WE WERE LAST, AND HAD TO GO TO THE VERY BACK ROW. WE FINALLY MADE IT TO SACRAMENTO AND THINGS WENT SMOOTHLY AND WE HAD A LOVELY VISIT. WE WERE WELL ENTERTAINED FOR THE WEEKEND. ZACH TOOK US BACK TO THE AIRPORT ON MONDAY MORNING VERY EARLY, AFTER ONCE AGAIN BEING DOUBLE-SEARCHED WE FLEW BACK THROUGH SALT LAKE CITY. IT WAS NICE THERE, AND WE HAD TO SIT AROUND FOR 3 HOURS, BUT IT WAS PLEASANT. THEN WE FLEW STRAIGHT TO DETROIT AND HOME TO FORT WAYNE. IT WAS NICE. I LOST TWO POUNDS ON THAT TRIP!!! WE HAD A GREAT TIME. (I was severely tempted to curse in Arabic...I can do that....but I refrained from uttering the curse near TSA... And I can count to three in Arabic and speak baby-talk Arabic ...and I knew a lot of Arabs, muslim and non-muslim ones, in college 45 or more years ago...but why are we being targetted by computers? Perhaps its the eyeliner I buy from Pakistan?) Might I point out we are part Native American and have more right to be here than just about anyone?
