I've been trying to come up with somethign smart to say about the latest security steps taken by TSA, and, as usual, Yglesias beats me to it. There's a small chance that this will actually make us safer, but the odds are huge that it won't. But there's a 100% chance that many people will simply stop flying. I know that I won't be volunteering for any business trips any time soon, and if there's another way to get there, I'll drive, ride the train, or whatever. Flying is just too much of a pain in the ass with our airport security regulations being secret, arbitrary, and politicized.
