TSA 'Opt-Out' Bags Handed Out at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport

I met with premier Phoenix Activist Donna Hancock bright and early this morning at a Circle K just outside the East entrance of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport at 5:45 a.m.
We were at the Freedom's Phoenix Workshop yesterday for about seven hours with a dozen other Phoenix area Activists, assembling the packets to be distributed today.
We put together about 500 of these packages, which include:
A 'Godzilla Attack' Dosimeter Badge (courtesy of wewontfly.com)
A R3VOLUTION card with more info
an extra pair of blue latex gloves (they don't change gloves between pat-downs, possibly passing pathogens from person to person)
a dvd with For Liberty, and
a lawyers' business card (Marc Victor)
here's the dosimeter, front:
and back:
We parked in Terminal 4 self-parking, donned our blue gloves, and proceeded into the terminal.  Donna left a bag on the desk outside the elevators (which was gone when we came back), and only handed out one or two bags on our way to the South upstairs arrival curb, where we knew we would see the most people.
Just as I had anticipated from my years as a cab driver, the curb was very busy at 6 a.m. the day before Thanksgiving, and I posted up at the entrance, while Donna decided to wander around inside the Terminal.
Ten or so minutes later, she pops outside the door and we compare notes.  She had given out a few inside, but it seemed the entrance was the best place to be, so we were on either side of the door, doing our thing.
We soon realized the basics of the situation.  You know how things get when you arrived at a busy airport to catch your flight during the holidays - your hands are full and you just have so much time to do your business.  Those people were best left alone, and we tried to stay out of those people's way, while actually getting receptivity from many interested passengers.  It was only a short time of trying out many different 'lines' on people, and the one that seemed to work best for me was "are you opting out of the x-ray machines?"  Those that indicated they were, I would hand them a bag and say "MAKE them change their gloves before patting you down!"  This kind of POWER people responded to!  It gave them the directive option, and when many people understood that THERE WAS NO GLOVE CHANGE BETWEEN PAT-DOWNS, the light went off in their heads, and they profusely thanked us for providing that which they didn't think of, and most were 'grossed out' at the idea to start with.
One other thing that surprised me was the amount of airport workers and TSA Agents that ASKED us for a bag!  I was astounded when a PILOT came back outside and asked me for a bag when he found out what was in them!!!
This was definiely worth doing, and I will be out there off and on throughout the day handing these bags out until they are all gone.
