    I am all for making the existing rail system in the US better, running faster and more often.

    That doesn't mean that I consider intrusive pat-down procedures as a "given", nor do I think body-scan images, which can be transferred to other agencies and stored in databanks, as a "given". Threats by security personell at the airport, if you resist the pat-down (how far will that go?) is already going on.
    What's next?

    It's degrading your dignity as a person to be stripped down like a criminal and also overblown procedure if it's down for every single traveler. The security hysteria is going to kill you first before you become a victim of a terror bomb in a plane.
