Security expert James Fallows has a short post about The Great Fear: The actions of VIPR in Tennessee, moving beyond the known territory of air travel, are noted in his piece. Amtrak is able to find explosives with only dogs. No need to abrogate travellers' rights as they get off trains. Kudos for remaining unterrorized by the DHS/TSA and pushing back against encroachment on their transportation system security. Amtrak does just fine without TSA. As would private airlines. As would we all.
