62. You mean the datamining?
Facebook, twitter, "the internet," the FBI, travel records...

If you have any "Federal" presence, they can get info on you if there are records available.

If there's a newspaper article that talks about you attending an Eid festival with a bunch of rather vocal Islamic Studies professors at Bumstead University, well, they could go after you based on that association.

This is why they like to know who's flying well ahead of time. They don't just make up a list--they're checking it twice. Buy your ticket on the day you fly, and you're almost guaranteed a little extra attention.
