The Airport Security Follies
Patrick Smith has a New York Times blog post about The Airport Security Follies. "Six years after the terrorist attacks of 2001, airport security remains a theater of the absurd. The changes put in place following the September 11th catastrophe have been drastic, and largely of two kinds: those practical and effective, and those irrational, wasteful and pointless." This is one of the best summations I've seen of why the TSA rules have been a joke.
