    He does realize that increased pat-downs means less travel, and lower income from his crappy guides, right?

    Doubtful. You could apprise him of that possibility.

    Apparently Arthur Frommer is senile and can't read. A patdown won't detect an underwear bomb that feels like underwear.

    What they need are explosives trace technologies that will detect it efficiently.

    Plan B would be to have everyone drop his or her drawers at the checkpoints so Smurfchen can manually check their undies.

    Plan C (not to discount Mike's plans A and B) is for the citizenry of the US (mostly, but also the world) to understand and acknowledge that they will never be perfectly safe, and they will need to choose between paranoid measures left and right for maximum safety at an astronomical cost, both in money and liberty; or to go about their lives and enjoy their freedom with the understanding that they may be called upon by circumstance to defend themselves and their fellow people, that they may remain free and send a message that they are capable of attending to themselves.

    Huh...kinda puts Obama's "Yes We Can" bit in a different light.

    There will never be another hijacking as the passengers will take the idiots out wholesale. Furthermore TSA endangers us to the equivilant of full 737 a month increase in people killed on the road since 9/11. Do it the easy way send screening back to 9/10/01 and things will be fine.

    Ironically not one supportive comment on that article...imagine that Frommer is out touch with reality.
