    Widely accepted? Or widely imposed without the require notice and comment period?

    How many of those 200 items were legitimate targets of an administrative search conducted for the purposes of aviation safety?

    According to a note in the sidebar, "Currently, there are 488 imaging technology units at 78 airports." At an approximate cost of $150,000 per machine, that roughly $366,000 per item of "contraband" found. This doesn't even factor the staffing & training costs which probably exceed the hardware costs annually.

    Methinks the TSA really is feeling the backlash from it's November debacle.

    I wish I could just curl up in my bed tonight and wake up on September 14, 2011. So much hype about the 10th anniversary, it's going to be nauseating.
