We all want to not be hijacked. Of course, I do think Americans are sligtly obsessed with fear mongering. "Paranoia will destroya ya." If safety eventually required and was proven to need such measures, guess we'd have to live with it.
But today's editorial suggested only way to gurantee security is to go on without any hand luggage. Next they will require we go on naked. Hope they at least give us a toga.
Do you think such measures are necessary. Would it effect your flying. It would mine. Some trips would be useless. Labtops are vital for much of our travel.
If airlines insured the contents in their holds, maybe it would not be so severe. But,they do not.They loose it you are screwed. I know, they almost once lost my $200o bike. I'd just been screwed. I am sure they will treat laptops no differently. What do you think.
Many companies such as the NYT's send it's employees on planes with company laptops. Wonder if the airline lost a company laptop, if they'd hold the employee responsible?
