So TSA feels the need to do extra security checks on elderly and children now….? Now while I do believe this steams from the thought of being “one step ahead of the game”–putting in “undue” security measures before they have reasons to become “due” security measures. An awareness of those that wish to do harm aboard airlines is significant. But when rules are put in place in these such formats I think it more illustrates how afraid we are, and therefore that much more vulnerable. We need to showcase our ability in wisdom, not through tactics that show off our fright.
