Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The other significant part of the argument about TSA searches may have more to do with paying back contributors to ones political campaign than outrage over the loss of privacy. I heard Florida congressman John Mica interviewed on the subject a few days ago. He despises the TSA and has quickly jumped on the criticism bandwagon relating to the new searches, but not surprisingly he couldn't list a single way that replacement of TSA screeners by his friends and benefactors in private security would lead to improvements in either screening methods or privacy.  Sometimes one just doesn't need a good explanation.
