Oooooh. The Instapundit has a column up about air-security drawing the obvious link between bankrupt airlines and tweezer confiscation. Excerpt:
"As one Israeli security expert said, America doesnít have a system for air security, it has a system for bothering people.

The post-Sept. 11 air security system has been all about appearances. Itís the bureaucratsí effort to fool the American public into feeling safe via cosmetic measures that create enough inconvenience to fool the gullible into thinking that all that hassle must be making them safer.† Thatís what has people angry. Itís not that the air security program is ineffective, and itís not that itís a big pain. Itís that itís both at the same time.†That the powers-that-be seem happy with that state of affairs is†what really rankles. Apparently, the powers-that-be overestimated the number of gullible air travelers.

P.T. Barnum supposedly remarked that no one ever went broke by underestimating the intelligence of the American public. The airlines†-- with a lot of help from Norm Mineta†-- may be about to prove Barnum wrong."
