Here's the comment I left (also awaiting moderation, though I've commented at that site in the past and my comments have been allowed to post): We haven't had "another 9/11" for two reasons and two reasons only: 1. The cockpit doors have been secured. 2. Passengers will not longer silently submit. Which is more than I can say for TSA apologists like you. The TSA hasn't thwarted a single potential attack in its multi-billion-dollar history. It is a nightmare. It out-Orwells Orwell. The scanners are a boondoggle for the "security" industry, the punitive gropes nothing more than slave training. Read up on Philip Zimbardo and Stanley Milgram and get a clue. How come planes weren’t being blown out of the sky left and right before the Reign of Molestation was instituted?? After all, The Terrorists Are Everywhere! If you think, as John Pistole clearly does, that it's perfectly okay that the TSA bullies, harasses, and abuses people -- even to the point of sexual assault -- there is something seriously wrong with you. I feel sorry for your wife and children. If you're so afraid of the risks of everyday life -- including the infinitesimally small risk of a terrorist attack in this country -- then do us all a favor and stay home cowering under the bed, and let the rest of us live our lives in freedom and dignity. Oh, and that cowering will have a side benefit -- you won't be driving anymore, an activity that will get you killed a lot faster than some bogeyman terrorist will. 35,000 traffic fatalities in this country EVERY YEAR. Put that in your paranoia pipe and smoke it.
