We came up with a heavy screening process after 9/11 to thwart the possibility of another terrorist attack. Now, the Bush Administration is talking about giving “Frequent Flyer” passes to travelers who are constantly flying. I guess bitching pays off. So my question is this; won’t it be possible for a terrorist to get a hold of said pass and then, once again, be able to potentially board a plane with a weapon or a bomb? I don’t get it. If you have to fly a lot, deal with it. That should be the way it is. Why would we come up with a loop-hole that could act as an enabler to a dangerous situation within something we came up with in order to avoid danger?
Americans take a day off work to get through the DMV. We’ve grown to accept long lines and potentially long waits. Can’t we just accept a hassle when we fly?
Again, every day I spend alive life becomes more and more like a Dr Suess book.
