284. There is no 100% safe. A bit more courage and less fear and smarter
ways to stop terrorism are needed. El Al has it right when it questions all passengers before they board the plane but it may not work in a country as large as ours. Someone bent on blowing up a plane will eventually succeed no matter what TSA does. The current security "upgrades" are rather silly but I didn't expect anything better on a Christmas weekend from the government. I expect the whole thing will be looked at again and changed in short order. The way to survive is not to overreact - stay calm and if the government doesn't look at every passenger, there is nothing to stop the passengers from looking around and deciding for themselves if they wish to fly on a particular flight for rational or irrational reasons. There's risk in crossing the street. Risk is part of life and I don't expect all risk to be done away with and certainly not on an airplane when the U.S. has so many people out there and in this country who wish us ill.
