I think that anyone that does much flying will recognize shades of the reporter’s experience. Flying back from Denver the other day, I was asked by a TSA lady whether I had a video camera. When I replied that I did not, but I had a digital camera she smirked and said that “that’s okay… for now.” This has nothing to do with public safety, but the knowledge of the very real power held kept me from giving her a proper sig heil.
Going to the airport gives one a very real taste of what it’s like to live in a police state. And the airlines wonder why they’re losing money.
