I just wanted to say thank you for being so inspiring, I had a tough time of things last year after being diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. You inspired me to put a ding in the universe and do something good, so I started http://www.BlameDrewsCancer.com and auctioned off my Twitter name (@drew) to Drew Carey for a million bucks for LIVESTRONG. Many a day after chemo I sat with my iPhone and Macbook Pro, and it kept me connected to the world around me during a lonely dark time. Thank you. _drew
When I wrote the preceding post, I had no idea how far it would reach. I’m glad that it’s out there now, particularly since the TSA responded publicly with an apology and a promise to retrain staff in handling sensitive situations.
We do our best to treat passengers with the dignity and…
I’ve been thinking about how I was going to write this post for a while now. Of course, I didn’t anticipate that I would be writing at 2 AM local time in London, where I’m currently visiting to speak at FOWA in a couple of days (that talk also just potentially got more interesting).
Stuff happens. Fortunately, sometimes, so does jetlag.
Enough with burying the lede: yes, I’m becoming a VC. I couldn’t be happier to announce that I’m joining CrunchFund as a general partner. It’s my honor to join Mike and Pat in that role. And I thank them for the opportunity.
Before I say anything else, I should also make something clear: as Erick states in his post, while the timing of this announcement may seem a bit odd given the recent drama involving AOL and TechCrunch and well, CrunchFund, this move has been a long time in the making for me.
She had breast cancer and they wanted to feel her breasts. Why? Because she has medical devices where her original breasts once were. TSA? You are rat bastard shit for brains. Yes, that is a broad generalization and I don’t know who runs the TSA. I hold them all accountable for being disgusting waste of space pieces of garbage.
Stop reading yet? For those who didn’t, you win. You have a heart and you’re human.
TSA? No humanity there.
The rest who stopped reading? Glad they did, they’ll be miserable for the rest of their lives.
Look at this beautiful strong amazing woman. Lori went through SIX 4 hour Chemo treatments, still has radiation in front of her, kicked the ever loving SHIT out of Cancer, sent it back to ITS grave, and still….still, is treated like a 4th class citizen.
I want someone to step up to the TSA and say this is NOT how you treat a human being, this is NOT how you treat a paying customer. Virgin America should step up and say this is NOT ok. Until the airlines step in and tell the TSA to stop being such a bunch of worthless drops of piss, nothing will change.
Oh sure, don’t fly. Oh sure, take a bus. Whatever man. Flying is a RIGHT. It was as soon as the Wright brothers invented it. This is AMERICA. And America is losing its humanity and capability to treat people how they’d like to be treated.
I #blameTSA, and you should too.
Wake up folks, Lori could have been your sister, your mom, your gramma, your WIFE.
