My take on the whole TSA thing.

You’re probably already familiar with the controversy surrounding TSA screening techniques. My opinion is that that the people who are so upset are simply unwilling to accept that the security they so desperately desire must necessarily result in some inconvenience for them.

It seems to me that you can either have freedom, and live with certain risks that that entails, or you can minimize the risk, and live with the governmental regulation of your life that entails. This Economist article says it well.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
