I wish this would have a bigger impact that I expect it to have, but the bottom line is there just aren't enough people that care about this yet. For everyone that's outraged by this, you can find at least one sheeple that's willing to get in front of a camera for his once a year flight and state "I'm ok with whatever will make us safer from the tewwowists."

I do hope this movement starts to educate enough flyers though about the real security issues that are ongoing. Unless we reign in this out of control agency they'll continue to perpetuate security theater and the myth that all of this passenger screening is making any of us safer when we step onto an aircraft.
