Gee, I wonder why people are opting out of air travel, when all they need to submit to is having their wifes’ and girlfriends’ vulvas massaged?
Which is worse, a TSA “love pat” or having to ride Amtrak? Hmmm.. that is a tough one.. but at least the TSA “love pat” is over quicker.

We should pay to fly her everywhere and make sure she turns down the screening.

I took Amtrak last summer to see my sister in LA, an overnight distance of about 400 miles. I could walk right on with no security theater, arrive early morning in LA, and then step right on the subway - yes, a subway - to Sis’ place.
What a world of difference from airport hell.
I priced a round trip to Arizona from the Midwest with sleeping arrangements. $1600 per person. Just couldn’t justify that much $$.
I'll bet most of the tickets are one-way out of the state to... anywhere.
