Airport Security

The airport security follies is an interesting opinion piece which highlights some of the absurd restrictions that have been introduced in the name of airport security.

In the blog Patrick Smith comments:


Six years after the terrorist attacks of 2001, airport security remains a theater of the absurd. The changes put in place following the September 11th catastrophe have been drastic, and largely of two kinds: those practical and effective, and those irrational, wasteful and pointless.
So have a read of this opinion piece - The airport security follies - and next time you fly note all make a mental note of all the "stupid" things done in the name of security.

Patrick Smith, is a commercial airline pilot, and the author of Salon.com’s weekly Ask the Pilot air travel column; his book of the same name was published in 2004.
