If only there was a way where the TSA
and airport security services could actually scan the cargo and passengers, keep the flights on schedule, and divert terrorism when it comes. Of course, I think Plato called this a Utopia.
Until then, and I am in full agreement with previous comments, there cannot be any fear allowed throughout the region. This is probably just as problematic as the 'Utopian' idea, but it needs to be done. The nation has turned into a bunch of scared idiots and unfortunately those same people have the power of the purse when it comes to canceling flights.
In response to another comment, BA
is not quite as wonderful as you may think. The only difference is, you guys have had your share of terrorism for many years and KNOW how to handle certain things. Our security system is new and it will take some time to work out the kinks in the line. However, they will get worked out and eventually this will settle down. But, it doesn't matter how much security is present, if someone really wants to undertake an act of terrorism, they'll find a way around the entire thing. Unfortunately, that's the world we live in today.
I'd be happy to see some more capable people in power to make the decisions about our nation's aviation security. However, as long as 'gullible' is the main word to describe the masses, anyone can step into office and the public will undoubtedly follow. Then, that same public opinion is the one that complains first about the long lines at the security check-in stations at the airports.
So, to each his own and to his own a, hopefully, better understanding about reality.
Cheers...and go Carolina!
