Here is my take on the whole thing. I have nothing to hide an will cooperate as much as reasonably can be expected. I do not think that seizing a laptop is going to make us any safer. I think like you pointed out role, that travel is going to become even more tedious than it already is in the name of security. Will I still travel with my laptop? Yes. Will I argue with customs and border patrol? Yes. Will it really do any good? No.
that takes me to my next favorite travel topic. Air travel. Has any one else noticed the lack of service or is it just me? Have the friendly skies stopped being friendly all in the name of security? Do any of us really feel safer flying today than we did pre-Sept 11? I know that I don't. Oh, well, enough of my rant. Thanks guys.
