Airport Security Theater goes nude
And even if these things do make us safer, is it worth it? I'm going to come right out and say it: Let the terrorists blow up a plane or two a year. It's not a big deal. It's only a big deal because people get hysterical about it. People should be concerned about heart disease, stroke, and cancer. And maybe automobile accidents, suicide, and drowning, depending on your demographics. Keep Calm, Carry On. Can we please spend our resources on things that provide a better return on investment? If we took what we're spending on airport security theater and spent it on childhood nutrition, I bet we could save a lot more lives than would be lost due to an increase in successful terrorist attacks. Heck, I'd rather spend the money on tax breaks for multi-millionaires, as repugnant as that is. At least then it wouldn't create a climate of fear and humiliation and clog our air transit network with delays and hassle.
