52. Read more carefully.
From the OP, in a quote from Tyner's own blog (which I had read last week):


As for his standing accused by The Nation of suspicion on the grounds of his avowed libertarianism, consider what he wrote several weeks before the TSA incident. In a post responding to this question -- "Whens the last time you were seriously inconvenienced or injured by something that big government did?" -- Tyner wrote:

"Gay rights , TSA body scanners, highway checkpoints, the PATRIOT Act, warrantless wiretaps, extra-judicial assassinations, indefinite detentions, inflation, etc. Don't tell me that (some of) these don't affect me. When one person's rights are trampled, everybody's are, and that's just at the federal level."
