It's bad policy, and needs to go away now, but I know you know that. :)

I hope that more people choose to avoid flying where possible, and that it has an actual effect in showing that the TSA protocols truly are not functioning reasonably. I'm sad that it's become a perceived necessity to practically molest people in order to check for contraband, I'm sad that anyone in their right mind can know we have to watch out for things - but we can't become that which we're battling, in the fight against harm.
