From the Moment We First Heard

OF THE PROPOSED Transportation Safety Administration and then its subsumation into the Department of Homeland Security (Doesn’t it give you a black-and-red, roman-saluting frisson to hear that fascistic coinage applied to an American government agency?), I held that the only way it would ever be even calmed down, let alone put down like the rabid dog of an idea it was, would be if the airlines complained that the utterly useless — even offensive — tactics employed were putting off passengers in sufficient numbers to have a negative effect on business.

I just never thought it would be European airlines to complain.
