Of course the flying public notices TSA more during busy travel seasons including the holidays, spring break, and summer vacation time. Last year during the holiday travel season of course interest in TSA and disgust of their practices escalated to one of the highest points thanks to the naked scanners and enhanced pat-downs.
Of course this died down almost instantaneously after the new year, but now that it’s summer travel season the buzz seems to be a lot quieter than previous years and policies haven’t changed much since the holidays.
Legislators have made news about TSA, but the flying public makes news much less frequently. Last week there was that horrible story about the elderly lady who was manhandled, but those stories are a little too few and far between considering the volume of passengers and the lack of change in TSA policies.
So do we just not care? As the proverbial frog in boiling water have we adjusted to this temperature for the time being and it will take more changes to get us riled up again?
Even the Flyertalk forum on travel safety and security is relatively quiet.
