Now that is going a bit too far. Ok, we saw what happened, we all know it's time to put up with a bit more security. But to sacrifice everything, to get on the plane naked, to have to explain what one is carrying and why... that's all going a bit too far. IMHO, the least intrusive way of finding weapons should be employed, full stop. But, by reading a book about whatever, noone is presenting a security threat. I mean, you could be reading a biography of Bin Laden, but if you're not carrying weapons, how can anyone stop you?
Unfortunately the authorities are not realising that by lengthily 'screening' and humiliating the passengers, they're discouraging them from flying. In turn, airlines will go bankrupt, airports will close and the FAA will lose its importance, too.
Yes, security has to be there, but like with everything, a healthy compromise must be found. Multi-zone metal detectors and bodyscans and x-ray machines with added explosive detection capability should, if used properly and by competent staff, provide adequate security in a short time. And all the four-times ID check stuff is useless. As for me, if the situation with security doesn't improve and level off to a sane condition, I won't fly. I'm sure hundreds of travelers share my opinons.
