And I forgot to say that also in Palm Beach International airport, the scrolling messages about the evils of gels and liquids were followed by a statement of TSA rights . No mention of the rest of us and whether we have any.
From my perspective, I'd like to note that (having circled the airport twice to pick up binky, since no one is allowed to actually stop and wait for arriving passengers) the threat of car bombs outside of airports has always seemed tremendously overblown, and the security measures to prevent them idiotic. I mean, (1) no one has ever bombed the arrival/departure pick-up/drop-off area (so there isn't a threat in the first place, I think), and (2) the fact that they shoe you away if you pause for more than 30-seconds isn't really a preventative (you can still drive a car bomb up - getting away gets a little bit harder).
What, exactly, is this (universal) rule supposed to help prevent?
