In an effort to bring a bit of levity to the TSA brouhaha I thought I'd say that the line "She touched my pepe, Steve!" from Multiplicity was one of the 1st things to cross my mind after the John Tyner incident.
Also, see this cartoon.
On a more serious note, I've now talked to two people who think that what the TSA is doing is OK because "OH NOES, TERRORISTS!" One of them actually said that 4th Amendment violations were ok because of national security and the damage that blowing up planes would do to the U.S. economy.
The kicker? These folks are both Obama supporters who absolutely detest President Bush. Sadly I think many of my fellow Americans enjoy their chains more than they love liberty.
