“It was averted by brave individuals not because the system worked and that is not acceptable.”

Really?!?!?! That’s an interesting statement.

I’m must be really weird. I look at things a little differently. See,  I think the fact that the system failed and brave individuals did not is AWESOME!!!! In fact, I put way more faith and trust in a bunch of even semi-brave individuals than I do in any “system” the TSA could possibly devise.

But that’s just me–I’m a hopeless realist.
