I've been on the road a lot lately and continue to be amazed by the odd airport security solutions used by the TSA. I got off a plane last Thursday, the first day of "no liquids, gels, etc.", finally feeling safe from the threat of bottled water and cosmetics.
John Tierney of The New York Times sums it up quite well in this article (subscription required, but free trial available). I agree with him that we're going about this all wrong and need to look at the Israeli airports for a model that provides better security. Am I prepared to wait in long lines to be individually screened? You bet.
