Montana Airport Security

There’s a great USA Today article about seven small Montana airports that currently don’t have security screening, but they want it. The TSA says the very small airports don’t justify the cost; Montana says security screening will help build traffic to those airports. We guess that Montana just wants all its citizens to be afraid, which is the only real point of U.S. airport security – to keep our citizens in a constant state of low-grade fear so we’ll be more docile with all aspects of government intervention in our lives. If so, we’d bet that TSA spends the money (said to be $2 million per year) so those 30 passengers a day (average combined from all seven airports) can be just as afraid as the rest of their fellow citizens.
