    Getting lost in the excitement is a story on CNN that air travel will drop this year, following a drop in traffic at the end of 2011.

    No mention of TSA.

    However, who in their right mind would go to the airport and put up with the continued abuse when everything else that is bad about air travel continues to get worse?

    Music to my ears.

    Though they're also claiming air travel will perk right back up after this supposedly temporary dip.

    And of course the TSA apologists are out in full force in the comments.

    Someone told me an interesting thing the other day.

    The truth doesn't need to be propped up.

    If the TSA were so great, then why do these people need to so passionately defend it?

    Well, it makes a great sound bite, but unfortunately the truth does need to be propped up, because it's constantly trying to counter so many lies. Wasn't it Mark Twain who said a lie travels halfway round the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes?

    On what basis will domestic air travel start increasing? The FAA must be drinking Bernanke's coolaid

    You guys have got to see some of the comments over at that CNN article. The sheeple are bleating. But god bless someone called "scotswoman." She is kick-(expletive deleted). We should get her over at TUG. Only reason I haven't posted a TUG link is because that often gets the comment booted to spam/moderation.
