Great answer to the TSA supporters who need to feel safe with their suckies and blankies....

You want to get home safe. Of course you do. Everybody does. But we have spent millions and millions of dollars on this security theater, and there's a point were the obvious question becomes, how much money are we willing to spend for this security? "Any amount" is an emotional answer, but not a practical one. "As much as it takes until spending more money doesn't provide any extra security" is probably more rational, but...I hate to break it to you, but we passed that point of spending a long, long time ago.
People die all the time. It's entirely possible that, some day, people will die on planes again due to terrorist action. And that's sad. But honestly, I'd rather have my freedom back and risk it than spend a fortune throwing money at a perceived problem because it makes you feel safer.
