      I reread my comment, and I apologize for its unsympathetic tone.  The story of your catheter, bag, and the injuries to your dignity should have been addressed first.  That sounds awful; may your hernia repair recovery move quickly beyond the need for that.

      I was responding to the idea that your baldness, and the general geezer status you claimed, should make security personnel look at you differently.  I too set off the security checkpoint alarm at our courthouse about a month ago.  The personnel manning that point did just what they were trained to do, and my white hair made no difference.  Nor should it.  Perhaps I remember the terrorists whose age is like my own more clearly, but it seems to me that there are a enough right wing nuts who we might describe as getting on in years involved to make security personnel cautious.
