[IP] errors in news and travel info

Hi everyone,

 I was looking at the Transportation Security Administration web site's travel
recommendations for persons with diabetes and found the following:

 "Notify screeners if you are wearing an insulin pump and, if necessary, advise
the screener that it cannot be removed since it is surgically implanted."

 This recommendation may be intentionally erroneous so that arguments in
security lines may be avoided, but nonetheless it is WRONG and could be a reason
why there's so many assumptions going around that insulin pumps are implanted
(i.e. recent errors in news reports and postings regarding the errors). This
information is also posted on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation web

I plan to write to both entities.

dxed T1 9/92, pumping since 1/02
