Did the TSA Back Down?

More

Jonathan Adler points to stories which suggest that the TSA may have dialed back the security this weekend in order to avoid unpleasantness.  If true, then like Adler, I think this is unlikely to help much; only 20% of airports currently have the backscatter machines.  If the TSA keeps rolling forward with what Gene Healy has dubbed the "freedom fondle", I predict they're going to meet more, um, resistance.
