This page http://www.sconet.state.oh.us/rod/newpdf/default.asp has a tutorial about how to cut and paste from a pdf. Cool! One of the many many things I hate about pdf's is that I couldn't cut and paste. So off to try to learn a new trick.

On July 4, 2002, Gilmore, a California resident and United
States citizen, attempted to fly from Oakland International
Airport to Baltimore-Washington International Airport on a
Southwest Airlines flight. Gilmore intended to travel to
Washington, D.C. to “petition the government for redress of
grievances and to associate with others for that purpose.” He
was not allowed to fly, however, because he refused to present
identification to Southwest Airlines when asked to do so.

Hey it works! Using the text select tool, one can then cut and paste.
Wish somebody'd told me that 5 years ago.

Gilmore approached the Southwest ticketing counter with
paper tickets that he already had purchased. When a Southwest
ticketing clerk asked to see his identification, Gilmore
refused. Although the clerk informed Gilmore that identification
was required, he refused again.

Significant here is that the clerk was lying - identification isn't required.
The passenger can opt for the invasive body search instead. That he was lied to makes his desire to see the secret rules that much more important.
