The Feral Genius Offers Heartfelt Congratulations To International Celebrity Thedala Magee
But that's likely to change, thanks to Magee's gloriously clueless lawsuit. In the few hours since I wrote about it, here on my rather obscure blog (if you're reading this, you're statistically exceptional), I've had visitors searching for "Thedala Magee" coming not only from America, but from the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany .... congratulations, Ms. Magee! Instead of being known only to the relatively few people who either read Alkon's blog or frequent TSA opposition forums, your name is known to everyone on the internet. If my obscure little blog's getting that many hits, just imagine how many are going to TechDirt, Forbes, Popehat, and the ever-growing number of other sites covering your travesty of a lawsuit.
I do know that either Sabrina Birge or friends or relatives thereof commented here a couple months ago, after I criticized Birge's behavior on behalf of the TSA; I can only hope Thedala Magee is in the habit of Googling herself as thoroughly as she diddles innocent travelers. I also suspect TSA higher-ups wish Magee had simply let the issue drop; the last thing TSA wants is a jury contemplating its procedures to decide whether or not they constitute sexual assault.
