    Probably should stick to reporting health-related news ...

    Health Canal: Is it Time to Consider a New Approach to Airline Security?

    Reads like a TSA press announcement -- where are they getting this drivel?

    Amazing. This shameless shill justifies the TSA's shredding of the Constitution by pointing out the damage and costs caused by 9/11 attacks. THAT will never happen again due to hardening of cockpit doors, arming of the pilots, and the awareness of the pax that they HAVE to defend themselves as well. The most the terrorists can do now is blow up one aircraft in the air. Except that blowing up a checkpoint would be more spectacular, and there are no safeguards against that attack currently. My money is on a dirty bomb, personally, placed in a large city somewhere.

    I think it is time for a new approach to airport/aviation security. Obama should tell the airlines it's their property, protect it!

    Baloney. Screening people and belongings is not rocket science; it's a repetitive boring job done by unskilled workers that will move on to other things just like any other labor sector. Some may enjoy the work and stay on, but again you'll see that anywhere.

    Hear that whining? It's the Air Transport Association saying the government should pick up their member's expenses. :rolleyes:
